These curriculum skills units have been developed as a guide to assist educators instructing students with disabilities. Curriculum skills outlined in the text stress strategies needed to: develop effective communication skills, understand practical math and science skills, determine acceptable social skills needed in society, identify those affective and psychomotor skills needed to function successfully in the classroom and community, teach acceptable moral and character development, and provide functional strategies in the five curriculum domain areas for educators to implement.

Taylor); (4) "Behavioral Styles of Disabled Individuals: An Integrated Approach" (Francis Harrington and George R.
