***The Functional Life Skills Framework is currently being revised and will be available at the end of the summer. 25 units geared for students with mild to moderate cognitive impairment with a variety of suggestions for different functioning levels of students. Each unit has goals, discussion points, group discussion theme questions, daily student assignments, a role-play scenario, suggested class activities,vocabulary for each unit, unit assessments, reading/vocabulary assessments, suggestions for community connections, and a word search for each unit. There is a Learning about America segment that has 50 assessments/word searches (one for each state) as well as a message of how we have implemented this component to the Framework. The Framework comes with a Functional Life Skills assessment and checklist, as well as a comprehensive domain assessment, and a letter to colleagues of how the Framework has been used. ***Topics include: Internet Safety, Citizenship, Community Safety, Personal Accountability, Taking care of the Environment, Employment Skills, Severe Weather, First Aid, Life's Transitions, Character, Food Preparation, Nutrition, Successful Relationships, Social Skills, Government, U.S Geography, Leisure Recreation,Navigating the Community, Phone Skills, Time Management, Travel Safety, Personal Hygiene, Independent Living,Money/Budgeting skills, Shopping Skills, Healthy Choices, Communication,Physical Fitness, and Public Transportation. 15 Character Education topics with role plays and assessments are also included.

The framework provides a base and structure for teachers to add their own resources and materials that fit the unique needs of their students/program.
