Having spent 33 years as special education teacher for students with autism and cognitive impairment, I know the challenges that face a teacher to implement a life skills curriculum to their students. During my time in the classroom I created our own life skills curriculum. One of the most valuable components of the curriculum were the domains, objectives, and activities that were created. These gave a base and structure to what we were doing in the classroom. From that base, I was able to customize and add new components to best meet my students' needs. The materials were kept and displayed in a binder that became our curriculum. My hope is that these materials may help a teacher struggling to find focus and direction in their life skills classroom for special needs students.
