"Cleaning House" is part of Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering transitional skills for mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike. 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, 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.
The "Cleaning the Living Spaces" video in Daily Living Skills' Cleaning House recaps the information learned on previous videos in this series and directs students toward the checklist and information in the workbook. A clear, clean, moderately-paced video allows students to obtain the needed information without distractions. This video is meant to be used in conjunction with the "Cleaning House" workbook in the Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills series.
A preview of this book is provided with the workbook site, or sample the series with our free book—Doing Laundry.
