Sex Education for Special Populations
The term special populations refers here to identifiable groups of persons who are likely to benefit from a sex education (and counseling) that is adapted so as to be appropriate to their particular, perhaps unique circumstances. Such populations include the mentally handicapped, the physically disabled, the chronically ill, and the elderly (Johnson & Kempton, 1981). However, this definition is not intended to be exclusive of other possible groups in need of some adapted form of sex education.
