This six-part curriculum introduces working with children with disabilities and is based on a model that sees disability as an issue of diversity rather than of dysfunction and medicine. It may be used in part, but use in whole is strongly recommended. The modules address the competencies involving cultural skills and knowledge and impact competencies regarding child welfare skills and knowledge about child abuse. They cover: quantifying the number of persons with disabilities in the United States and California, having participants understand their own values and attitudes regarding children with disabilities, physical and sexual abuse affecting children with disabilities, families with children with disabilities, a generic model of practice that includes children with disabilities and their families, and a resource directory.

Module I discusses effects of sexual abuse trauma on young children; describes the adverse effects of sexual abuse trauma and the role of past victimization experiences in motivating sexual acting out; includes a literature review; and covers affective, cognitive, and behavioral effects. Two practice models that explain the effects of abuse are discussed and compared, and an integrative treatment model is introduced. Module II discusses childhood sexual development, reviews research on sexual behavior problems in children, presents research findings about normative sexual development in children as well as criteria differentiating sexually abusive behavior problems from age-appropriate sex play, includes experiential exercises on sexual values, and reviews and discusses clinical and research methods used to classify types of children with sexual behavior problems. Each module contains learning objectives, suggested readings, an outline of issues addressed in the module, and suggestions for teaching the module in the classroom and in field practicum.
