Product Description

Washing Dishes is from Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering transitional 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 washing the dishes.

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 goals and Indicator 13 skills needed for adult 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.
