Subject:Re: Needing Resources [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Dear Rob, In Australia, Family Planing Queensland (2005) has developed a rules-based system for teaching protective behaviours programs to young people - including those with disabilities. It has at its core a rights framework. Fundamental to implementing the system is that the young person is provided with a good understanding of their body, taught the ability to identify and label feelings (including warning signs), and what to do when unsafe: NO, GO, TELL (teaching children to be able to say NO, to be able to GO to a safe place; and to be able to TELL someone about what has happened). Similarly, Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT (Australian Capital Territory) (2009) has developed “SoSAFE!” – a training program focused on social skills, sexuality education and social safety, in order to reduce vulnerability to sexual abuse - it also has versions for those with moderate to severe intellectual disability. Also, in Australia, through its new Respectful Relationship Program, over the next five years the Australian Government will be evaluating best practice respectful relationships education programs with school-aged young people across the country. Programs will be tested in school and non-school settings and will address the diversity of young people. See: Family Planing Queensland. (2005). Feel Safe - Promoting Self Protection [Version 1].
