Puzzle Box Academy (PBA) will be initiating a Personal Safety program as part of our curriculum to teach our students basic facts about safety and hygiene, physical and social safety, identifying and reporting events, tolerating medical examinations, learning the difference between good versus bad touches, tolerating medical examinations, maintaining personal space, understanding the different expectations from various relationships (stranger vs. acquaintance vs. friend vs. significant other vs. family), social media and internet safety, and review the process of puberty and the importance of public versus private behaviors. We at PBA believe these are important and necessary lessons and skills to teach our students in order to prepare them to be independent, safe, and have meaningful relationships with others as they get older and interact with different individuals. These topics are particularly important due to the research suggesting that individuals with Intellectual Disabilities are 4 times more likely to be sexually abused than their typical peers (Sullivan & Knuston, 2000). Brown-Lavoie, Viccili, and Weiss (2014) reported that out of a group of 95 “high functioning” adults with ASD, 78% reported at least one incidence of sexual victimization (unwanted sexual contact, coercion, etc.) compared to 47% of persons in a control group.
