“I am currently using LifeHorizons for socio-sexual skills education. It is a very effective educational tool.” – Heather Laushway, Social Worker
Teach your students the psychological and emotion aspects of being male and female in regards to family life.
The Life Horizons I curriculum is the most widely used family life education program for individuals with developmental and learning disabilities. Five separate topics are presented on over 500 slides. Life Horizons comes in two DVD versions: explicit and non-explicit which allows sensitive materials to be edited to meet student needs and community taste. The flexibility of our program has made it the first choice among our customers. The script and guide that accompany each set of pictures are comprehensive and easy to follow.
