Safer, Smarter Kids for Children with Special Needs Curriculum
This program incorporates visual aids to educate children about the importance of body boundaries and personal safety, and encourages children to develop a group of trusted adults with whom they can share things that make them feel uncomfortable. The framework is designed to create a cooperative environment for parents and teachers to create a learning plan so that each child, no matter his or her need, can receive a developmentally appropriate abuse prevention education. The framework integrates with current autism models and focuses on children recognizing facial cues and situational circumstances to determine what action they should take to protect themselves.
