This book is chock full of all sorts of resources, ideas, and tasks which work very well in the special education classroom, but should not be limited to that environment. I have built many of the tasks and used others as springboards for my own creations. Many of the tasks work well within the TEACCH system and independent workstations environment.
I highly recommend this book (for which there are companion volumes as well). In my judgment, every teacher should have a copy of this book on their shelf.
The book is full of pre-vocational types of work experiences for students with severe learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, low vision, or students that have low finger/hand tone and need different types of activities to build up hand strength. All of these items are made from common materials at minimal cost, which I give Kudos to the authors because they understand budget cuts. These items also spur other ideas for individual students. A required book if one is starting a vocational aspect in one's classroom.
I work with children that have developmental delays and the ideas this book has are amazing. You can modify them as you see fit. The book does not have instructions, it shows you a finished task, however they are all self explanatory and easy to execute. Again, can't recommend this enough
I purchased the book for our daughter-in-law who is a Ressource Teacher in a school in California. All I can tell you is that her husband told us she jumped up and down when she opened this book. For Christmas, she had wanted one of the other "Task" books, and she was so happy to receive it that I thought another one for her birthday would be ok too.
