Help students cope with the stress of the holidays while working on important adult life skills.
Managing Holiday Stress is a sample mini-unit from Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering transitional skills for mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike.
Like the other lessons in the 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, 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-four page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension. Real world activities are provided whenever possible.
A preview of this book is provided here, or sample the series with our free book—Doing Laundry.
Titles in the Daily Living Skills transition series include:
Dress for Success
Getting a Paycheck
Who Am I? College and Career
A Power Point Presentation introducing the program to students, parents and staff is available free of charge on this site.
A Teacher’s Manual providing tips on implementation and written ITP goals for each workbook is also available for purchase on this site.
