Adolescents with disabilities deserve to be taught about sex/health education issues in order to escape the unfortunate statistics awaiting them in the future if this education continues to be dismissed or simply ignored. Negative issues such as sexual abuse, substance abuse, and limited knowledge about STD’s, HIV/AIDS and safe sex can be avoided with sufficient education on these topics. Fifteen teachers at two special education high schools in Rochester N.Y were asked about current knowledge levels of their students in regards to sex/health education topics and about the programs/curricula that are implemented at their schools. The results indicate that the students are not adequately educated in these topics.
