"I was looking for a curriculum to last a year (or more!) with my students with intellectual disabilities. I wanted it to cover safety, home awareness, community awareness and job skills. This curriculum covers the majority of the topics I wanted and did a great job of breaking down the skills, creating opportunities for data collection and easy to navigate."
