By Emily C. Bouck, Teresa Taber Doughty and Melissa Savage
The ninth volume of the CEC Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities' Prism series, Footsteps Toward the Future provides an overview of and strategies when implementing a real-world curriculum with students with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. "Real-world" curricula incorporate instruction in functional or life skills-skills that support students in living independently and functioning successfully in an inclusive society: living, working, and having fun. Chapters in the book delve into the components of such instruction, discuss how to incorporate real-world skill training within academic settings, and explore effective community-based instruction and collaboration. Full of strategies, tools, and advice, Footsteps Toward the Future is both a valuable resource on life skills curricula and a "must-have" addition to every educator's transition planning toolkit.
