This list includes my recommendations for parents of children special needs looking for guidance in teaching their children life skills.
According to Dictionary.com, life skills is defined as “the ability to cope with stresses and challenges of daily life, esp. skills in communication and literacy, decision making, occupational requirements, problem-solving, time management and planning”.
In order to help you identify life skills your child will need no matter the life path he chooses, I have compiled four of the best books on this topic for you:
