Grocery Shopping is part of Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering life skills and transitional skills for mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike. This workbook serves as both a traditional print version and an interactive version using Adobe Acrobat Reader.


Written on a high 3rd/4th grade level with airy pages and bullet-point information for easy independent study, these books, nevertheless, respect teens’ maturity and humor while presenting federally mandated transition skills and Indicator 13 skills needed for adult independence.


Each workbook provides a Unit Checklist for students to track progress, a Parent Notification letter to meed guidelines for family involvement, and an answer key.


The Teacher's Manual (sold separately) provides written ITP goals for each book, pre/post-assessments, a parent priority questionnaire to meet federal guidelines, and coordination of units to federal codes for verification of compliance.


Workbooks are meant to be self-paced and adaptable with student interests and goals driving most units. Each lesson is taught in a short one-to-three page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension. Real-world activities are provided whenever possible.
