Three counties in southwest Michigan have received an abstinence grant from Sexual Risk Avoidance Program. Sexual Risk Avoidance Program is sponsored and run by the Family Research Council. The article talks about special need school where the program is being offered as part of the Curriculum. The curriculum covers puberty, reproductive health, healthy relationships, and sexually transmitted diseases. The curriculum also covers defense techniques about how to get out of violent, rape or sexual abuse situations.  The defense techniques are taught by the YWCA (Young Women Christian Association). The Association was founded in 1845 and today helps all young women around world with food and disease and health. The curriculum is presented to special needs students with mild to moderate cognitive disabilities.  The curriculum is also modified for teens with special needs.  This is great that students with special needs can receive Abstinence Sex Education curriculum in their schools in Michigan.  This will encourage all students in Montclam, Kent, and Ionia Counties in Michigan to be abstinent and make healthy decisions for life.
