Let's Talk Independence: A Curriculum for Learning Communication Skills. Participant's Guide.
Ansell, Dorothy I.; Griffin, William V.
Intended to help young people acquire independent daily living skills, this book is the participant's guide to an advanced youth training curriculum for developing communication skills. The guide's first session introduces the basics of communication, while the subsequent seven sessions (each intended to take approximately one hour) focus on communication in all aspects of life: on the job, with family, in the community, during leisure time activities, with friends, in the marketplace, and at home. Intended for use in a group setting and by youths who have already completed a more basic curriculum on independent living, the guide contains many activities which provide opportunities for youth to practice communication skills such as getting along with a roommate, approaching a landlord with a problem, dealing with criticism on the job, and negotiating with a car dealer.
