What is Whole Selves?

People with disabilities need honest sexual education. Whole Selves can help.

Whole Selves is an evidence-informed, healthy relationships curriculum based on more than 10 years of successful teaching in community and school settings.

Self-esteem, self-determination, consent, boundaries, sexual safety, and the positive experience of intimacy are just some of the topics covered in Whole Selves.

Straight-Forward and Inclusive

​Teaching methods are flexible and designed for simplicity, but with room for added complexity.  Materials are universally designed and represent a range of abilities, cultures and identities.  Lessons are direct, clear and systematic.

Professional Development and Support

Whole Selves is not only a collection of materials, but an approach.  Professional training for educators, human service professionals, caregivers and anyone interested in joining the conversation are an essential part of the work.

Dedicated to Building Community

People with intellectual disabilities have the capacity and the right to create and enjoy genuine, meaningful, lifelong relationships. It takes community to realize this vision.
