Deaf students are especially vulnerable to sexual abuse. This abuse may come from family members, friends of the family, neighbors, or anyone else. These children may not be able to verbally express themselves, and their parents may not be able to communicate with them in sign language. Overviews the communication skills and tools to train these children in personal safety. Also, emphasizes the three basic rules of "No," "Go," and "Tell." Produced by the Washington School for the Deaf in conjunction with the Abused Deaf Women's Advocacy Services (ADWAS). NOTE: Includes explicit signs and vocabulary related to human anatomy, and parents/teachers should preview it before use.
