The Guide is founded on the principles of early intervention (identifying

This guide is intended as a starting point for teachers exploring what they might do to support students with learning disabilities.

Abstract
Safe and healthy behaviour occurs largely as a result of social skill competencies and social inclusion. The policies in this guide focus on building said competencies by providing means of addressing specific skill and environmental deficits of individual residents. It is the intention of these policies to reflect human relationships and sexuality as a source of human fulfillment and joy. In light of this understanding, loving relationships and sexuality are reflected in these policies as human rights. They include: freedom from sexual stereotyping; freedom from sexual oppression; freedom of information; freedom to control one's own body and freedom to express affection.

Visual supports help children and youth with autism, Asperger Syndrome and other special needs understand their world better and therefore help them function more independently. This resource goes beyond the familiar use of visual supports as schedules with children with disabilities to include information sharers, checklists/organizers, and visual behavior supports. Richly illustrated and user-friendly, the book provides parents with all the information they need to make effective visual supports specifically designed for their child using a variety of materials, many of them commonly found around the house. The book also takes into considersation that parents are usually stressed for time and therefore need effective solutions that don't require excessive time to prepare or implement.

Abstract
Puberty is a time of huge change in the physical body, in emotional experience and in social relationships. Having an understanding of these developments and learning how to deal with them is essential, and for people with Asperger's syndrome it can be a challenge to get to grips with the social and emotional aspects of puberty, sex and relationships.This book is ideal for those who need clear, detailed explanations and direct answers to the many questions raised by puberty and sexual maturity. Sarah Attwood describes developments in both the male and female body, and explains how to maintain hygiene and personal care, and to promote general good health. She examines emotional changes, including moods and sexual feelings, and provides comprehensive information on sex, sexual health and reproduction. She looks at the nature of friendship, how it changes from childhood to adulthood and its importance as a basis for sexual encounter. She also offers coping strategies for different social experiences, from bullying to dating, and includes essential tips on the politics of mature behaviour, such as knowing the difference between public and personal topics of conversation. Making Sense of Sex is a thorough guide written in unambiguous language with helpful diagrams, explanations and practical advice for young people approaching puberty and beyond.
