For educators, parents, and others involved in teaching adolescents with special needs, here is a unique collection of 190 illustrated activity sheets with related exercises, discussion questions, and evaluation suggestions to help students acquire the basic skills necessary to achieve independence and success in everyday living.

Each activity sheet focuses on a specific skill within the context of real-life situations and includes complete teacher directions for its effective use, from objective and introduction through optional extension activities and ways to assess students’ learning.

For quick access, all of these ready-to-use materials are printed for easy photocopying and organized into six sections. Here’s an overview of the major topics covered in each section:

  • SELF-AWARENESS SKILLS—knowing onself, personal life choices

  • PEOPLE SKILLS—relating to others, making friends

  • ACADEMIC and SCHOOL SKILLS—reading, writing, math, study skills

  • PRACTICAL LIVING SKILLS—money, travel, living arrangements, shopping, eating, nutrition, exercise
  • VOCATIONAL SKILLS—finding a vocation, getting and keeping a job

  • PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS—making good decisions, using resources, setting goals, understanding risks.



This 2nd edition offers more than 50 all-new exercises covering everything from being flexible and understanding your disability to using cell phones, e-mail, the Internet, and debit/credit cards.

Also included is a list of parent activities which can be reproduced and given to parents to use in conjunction with the activities being worked on in class. You may supplement this list with your own activities and/or worksheets to provide extra reinforcement of new skills.

You’ll find these activities are completely flexible. You can use them in any order for a variety of purposes—to introduce, teach and/or reinforce specific life skills. Moreover, the activities can easily be modified to meet individual or group needs.
