The Right to Accessing Sexuality Education: SAFE SECS Curriculum LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

People with disabilities have been historically denied information about sexuality education. They?ve been denied the right to establish relationships and claim sexuality as part of their identity. This bleak reality is paired with a curriculum deficit in sexuality health education corresponding with the CCSS and SIECUS Standards for students with moderate/severe disabilities. We?ve designed a sexuality health education curriculum to provide educators with the necessary tools and resources to educate a growing population of students. Throughout the curriculum, language, social skills, and self-determination skills instruction is used to facilitate student engagement within the themes and standards outlined in eight units..OBJECTIVES: 1) Recognize that sexuality health is a human right. 2) Demonstrate understanding of Common Core State Standards and SIECUS Standards and how they relate to sexuality health education for students with moderate to severe disabilities. 3) Differentiate instruction for diverse learners in both inclusive and specialized academic settings. 4) Promote self-determination skills related to personal health. 5) Access SAFE SECS Curriculum online and use in the classroom.
