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.

Shane Burcaw was born with a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy, which hinders his muscles? growth. As a result, his body hasn?t grown bigger and stronger as he?s gotten older―it?s gotten smaller and weaker instead. This hasn?t stopped him from doing the things he enjoys (like eating pizza and playing sports and video games) with the people he loves, but it does mean that he routinely relies on his friends and family for help with everything from brushing his teeth to rolling over in bed.
