The Boys’ Guide to Growing Up gives boys with intellectual disabilities, ages 8 to 15, the basic information they need to navigate puberty and understand changes in their bodies. Designed to be read alone or with a parent, the simple, straight- forward text is written at a third-grade level for readers with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, fragile X, or other special needs. Realistic black-and- white illustrations and learning activities help to explain a range of topics from physical changes and social appropriateness to good hygiene and sexual feelings.

Terri Couwenhoven is an AASECT certified sexuality educator who specializes in working with people who have intellectual disabilities, their families, and the professionals who support them. She is the author of Teaching Children with Down Syndrome about Their Bodies, Boundaries, and Sexuality and The Girls' Guide to Growing Up. When she is not teaching, she is Clinic Coordinator for the Down Syndrome Clinic at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Ms. Couwenhoven has two daughters; her oldest has Down syndrome.
