Free Download on Teaching Life Skills

Parents, teachers and therapists who instruct teens and young adults, may want to check out Ready, Set , Fly A Parents Guide to Teaching Life Skills. This electronic book was created with foster parents in mind in particular but it is very useful for all parents and therapists. The activities are graded using different levels based on age (activities are developed for children ages 8 years old and up). The book is divided into several chapters on topics such as Daily Living Skills, Housing, Transportation & Community Resources, Money Management, Self-Care, Social Development and Work & Study Skills. The book includes many simple ideas for parents to carry out at home. Great resource and FREE!!! You can find it at Ready, Set, Fly!
