Record Keeping from Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills is a life skills workbook to help students with special needs understand how to organize the paperwork of adulthood including irreplaceable documents, bills and notices, medical paperwork, tax-deductible receipts, and more in accordance with federal mandates for transition services and adult living education.
Record Keeping 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, Record Keeping 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.
