Designed for quick and easy use, all of these ready-to-use materials are presented in an 8?" x 11" lay-flat format for easy photocopying and organized into six sections: Self-Awareness (knowing oneself, 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), and Problem-Solving Skills (making good decisions, using resources, setting goals, understanding risks). This new edition includes 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.

This book can be used equally well as an ongoing curriculum for daily life skills training in the classroom or as a go-to reference for teachers, homeschoolers, and therapists seeking help to address specific skill deficits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource March 22 2014
By Susan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was purchased for my daughter teaching in a school in Australia. She was struggling to find appropriate resources for her class. The head of Spec. Ed. at the high school I work at recommended the Darlene Mannix series. I received a call from my daughter thanking me for such an invaluable resource!!! She references it daily and has made teaching this class much better.

By CH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perfect for Aspergers children who need help with Life Skills and Social Skills. While the book is really for groups, I have still found it perfectly useful for an only child. I just adapt the exercises. I would recommend this for Homeschooling an Aspie, which is why I purchased it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Troubled Kids! Feb. 19 2014
By Bassmntmuzik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its on what seems to be a 3rd grade reading level, but helps students gain confidence. I teach a life skills class in an middle school in Brooklyn and was told that the entire curriculum is in this book. The school gave me the 5 most troubled kids in the school and it turned out to be a great tool.

The books gives great ideas for lessons and activities, along with a daily worksheet. The work is highly manageable for middle school students and they end up working through the worksheet with confidence. I highly recommend this book to anyone teaching this type of course.
