Healthy Relationships and Sexuality Education for Students with I/DD/Autism
Whole Selves is an evidence-informed, healthy relationships curriculum, designed for students with ID and Autism. This ground-breaking approach to relationships and sexuality teaches self-determination, consent, boundaries, sexual safety, and positive experience of intimacy. For more than 10 years, Whole Selves has been taught at Whole Children, a community of social/enrichment programs for children/adults with ID/Autism, and schools in Massachusetts, USA. The curriculum meets the American Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT) standards of quality.
