Life Skills Activities for Secondary Students with Special Needs
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.

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.
