Emergency Preparedness from Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills is a life skills workbook to help students with special needs understand how to prepare for and protect themselves during a natural disaster in accordance with federal mandates for transition services and adult living education. These workbooks serve as both a traditional print version and an interactive version - using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Emergency Preparedness 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. Like the other books in this series, Emergency Preparedness 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-world activities are provided whenever possible.
