Abstract
This book introduces the concept of an activity schedule which is a set of pictures or words that cues a child to follow a sequence of activities. When activity schedules are mastered, children are more self-directed and purposeful in their home, school, and leisure activities-doing puzzles, interacting with classmates, and preparing food with minimal assistance from adults. In this book, parents and professionals find detailed instructions and examples to help them: assess a child's readiness to use activity schedules; prepare an activity schedule; understand graduated guidance; monitor progress; expand social skills; and progress to written schedules.

Abstract
Health care professionals need to understand their patients’ views of their condition and its effects on their health and well-being. This book builds on the World Health Organization's concepts of 'health', 'functioning' and 'quality of life' for young people with neurodisabilities: it emphasises the importance of engaging with patients in the identification of both treatment goals and their evaluation. Uniquely, it enables health care professionals to find critically reviewed outcomes-related information. The authors are leaders in their respective research fields and discuss theory, concepts, and evidence, and how these are applied in clinical settings and research applications.

PeopleSmart-1 teaching basic friendship skills, is the first video program to focus on the specific skills needed to make a "real" friend. Students will learn the 10 best ways to meet people, how to distinguish between an acquaintance and a real friend, and what to do to maintain a good relationship.
PeopleSmart-2 helps students learn the difference between trust and gullibility and that "niceness" does not always mean "goodness." This program focuses on teaching students who and when to trust, and how to recognize and deal with people who don't care about their best interests.
Notes
Although originally designed for students with mild to moderate learning, emotional and cognitive disabilities, LifeSmart Curriculum series is appropropriate for any population in need of a comprehensive review of basic life skills.
