Staying Healthy 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. These workbooks serve as both a traditional print version and an interactive version - using Adobe Acrobat Reader.


Written on a high third/low fourth-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.


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.
