Community Resources from Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills workbooks help students understand how to use the various community resources available in most towns and counties to meet federal life skills and transition skills mandates. This workbook serves as both a traditional print version and an interactive version using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Community Resources provides instruction in adult living skills and transitional skills for both mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike and provides adult living skills for special needs teens to meet federal transition mandates, Indicator 13 requirements, and SCAN recommendations.
It is a stand-alone unit providing students with skills to live independently by providing them the background and knowledge to understand how to access community resources but can be further enhanced as a 5-book unit (with other books available soon.)
Like the other books in this series, it contains airy pages and bullet-point information for easy, independent study, yet, these books, nevertheless, respect teens’ maturity and humor while presenting federally mandated Indicator 13 skills and transition skills needed for adult independence. Each lesson is taught in a short one-to-four page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension.Real-worldd activities are provided whenever possible.
