Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review
Positive Prevention PLUS is a 14-lesson curriculum that addresses risk factors and behaviors associated with unplanned teen pregnancy by increasing adolescent’s ability to use risk-reduction skills including contraceptive use, resistance and negotiation skills, and accessing reproductive health services. The program seeks to teach adolescents to either delay/abstain from sexual activity or use birth control consistently and correctly when engaging in sexual activity.
Sex Education for Physically, Emotionally, and Mentally Challenged Youth
In recent years, important changes in public policies and attitudes have resulted in improved opportunities for people with physical and mental disabilities. Now, people living with disabilities assume their rightful place in society as the equals of non-disabled people. Unfortunately, societal attitudes have changed less in regard to sexuality and disability. Even today, many people refuse to acknowledge that all people have sexual feelings, needs, and desires, regardless of their physical and/or mental abilities. As a result, many young people who live with disabilities do not receive sex education.
