Sex Education & Sexuality for Very Special People

Sex ed symbol largeIn view of this, I have put three chapters and an Appendix from my book 'Sex Education and Sexuality for Very Special People: A Sensory Approach' on the Info Exchange website as downloadable PDF files, for readers to access using their code. The references in the book are old, but the content is still relevant.

The chapters offered are:

  • Chapter 1 - Sexuality and sex education - an overview
  • Chapter 3 - Planning a sensible sex education policy for very special learners
  • Chapter 8 - Touch, massage and hug therapy
  • Appendix 6 - Masturbation

Access the files from the magazine's home page in the Book and Article Reviews section here. The full book can be ordered from Amazon or direct from Flo Publications Limited.

SA book coverThere is also a book out of interest to our South African magazine readers:

"Teachers' and Child Care Providers' Views of Sexuality, HIV and AIDS Education in Working with Learners with Disabilities in special schools in South Africa" by Elizabeth Chmel and Julia S Louw (2011) – 138 pages, paperback.


Unfortunately this is priced at 924 rand (59 UK pounds) so it is rather inaccessible unless you use your local lending library to obtain it! It can be found on the Amazon website at the retail price and from other  suppliers on Amazon from 48 UK£.
