Hygiene for Girls is from Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering life skills and transition skills for mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike. It is a stand-alone unit providing students with skills to understand the reason for and steps necessary for staying clean and healthy.


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 transition skills and Indicator 13 skills needed for independence.


Written on a 3rd/4th-grade level, 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-four-page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension. Real-world activities are provided whenever possible.
