People with disabilities have traditionally been denied access to sexuality education or the free expression of sexuality. Through a disability studies lens, this book considers the historical, legal, and ethical implications of sexuality education for people with disabilities. Editors Gibbon, Monaco, and Bateman and their contributors discuss the roles of family, culture, entertainment, education, and social media as they relate to sexuality education and explore contextual concepts such as intersectionality, the range of disabling conditions, and the connections between adolescent development and disability.The text concludes with recommendations to support people with disabilities in the transition to adulthood. The editors advocate for public policy improvements and a call to action for students, teachers, and families.
