Sexual education in the United States is inadequate for all students, but those with disabilities are particularly affected. This authoritative text provides concise information to assist in teaching sexual education basics to disabled students, a group that is frequently left out of conversations about sexual health despite having high rates of sexual abuse. This book provides resources and strategies to help educate disabled students about the concept of consent and how to recognize abusive behaviors. This comprehensive guide will help disabled students protect themselves and their sexual autonomy.
