Hartman, an educational psychologist in Ireland who works with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders, aids professionals and parents in teaching these children about sexuality and relationships within a social skills program. Aiming to help professionals develop their own programs and curriculum, she describes issues involved in teaching sexuality and relationship education, what to include in a program, the research base, typical sexual behaviors of children, how to understand behavior in general, and best practice teaching tools and recommendations, as well as working with parents and carers and developing policies and procedures. She offers information, teaching activities, and recommendations for teaching gender; body parts and fluids; growing and changing; puberty; appearance and personal hygiene; public vs. private; safety skills; sexual health; conception, pregnancy, and birth; internet safety; emotional understanding and regulation; sensory sensitivities; masturbation; relationships; dating, intimate relationships, and sex; and a sense of self. The final section addresses ways to respond to inappropriate sexualized behaviors and put together curriculum and behavior management plans.
