Early, ongoing training in the social skills crucial to establishing successful adult relationships―in college, vocational school, residential living, or on the job―can help. Preparing for Life guides readers through the legal, financial, educational, vocational, and community resources available after graduation. The essence of the book lies in the 73 “Skill Lessons” targeting:

  • Nonverbal communication
  • Empathy
  • Anger/anxiety management
  • Conversational skills
  • Employment-related skills
  • ―which can be taught by parents, teachers, or professionals. This easy-to-follow resource offers a complete toolbox of social skills and the means to attain them.
