Product Description

From the Back Cover

Life Skills Activities for Secondary Students with Special Needs

Second Edition

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition, special educator and best-selling author Darlene Mannix offers teachers and parents a unique collection of illustrated activities complete with student worksheets, discussion questions, and evaluation suggestions to help adolescents with special needs acquire the basic skills they need to achieve independence and success in everyday life. Each activity focuses on a specific skill within the context of real-life situations and includes complete teacher instructions for its effective use, from objective and introduction through optional extension activities and guidelines for student assessment.

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.

Format: Paperback
This set of lessons for social skills learning is excellent. It is almost completely worksheet based, and appropriate for students with social skill deficits in secondary school. Depending on the severity of the deficits, the worksheets would be more appropriate for grades 6-9. It is also appropriate for students in the latter half of elementary with fewer issues. The book is also appropriate in settings where more than one level of child is present (e.g., within a home schooling environment). The lessons are not as in depth...this is primarily a worksheet based support for learning.

There are 5 worksheets for each skill (intended to be done 1 a day through the week, but could also all be done on one day). The first 7 skills are basic social skills, followed by 9 skills for self-improvement, and 11 skills for being around others. Then the focus shifts to the use of those skills in different settings: home, school, work, with peers, and finally in the community.

I stumbled upon this book while looking for resources on NLD (nonverbal learning disorder), which has caused my bright, 12-year-old son to flounder both academically and socially since fourth grade. It is FULL of excellent activities for children who have difficulty picking up social cues and interacting appropriately with their peers. Because my son works so hard during the regular school year, and typical summer programs and camps only cause him anxiety, we now opt to let him just take time off from organized activity during his summer breaks. But he will be assisting in the family home business, and now we plan to incorporate the exercises in this book into his daily schedule. They are interesting and fun, and even I look forward to working on them.

I paid $26.00 plus for this book, which came with a sticker from a Book Warehouse Store that said $2.00. It seems so simple to remove a previous sale price. Since the book was in relatively poor shape, this did not ease my feeling of being being ripped off.

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.
