Enjoying Recreation from Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills workbooks helps students understand what recreational activities are in their communities and how to access them and act while using them in compliance with federal mandates for transition and life skills acquisition. These workbooks serve as both a traditional print version and an interactive version - using Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Enjoying Recreation 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, Enjoying Recreation 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.
