Life Skills Activities

The James Stanfield Publishing Company offers a special edition of its best-selling human intimate relationships education program, Life Horizons, for the severely disabled. This special edition uses clear icons for non-verbal cues to illustrate “right” and “wrong” behaviors. Green smiley faces pop up as a friendly clue that sitting happily next to each other on the bus is “good.” A pleasant but exasperated red face pops up when “uh-oh” moments occur, like kissing sessions on public transportation.

Another popular teaching tool for educators of the severely disabled is our “No-Go-Tell!”  abuse-prevention kit. No-Go-Tell! features two dolls, and nearly 80 11″ x 17″ clear and easy-to-understand illustrations that make “okay touches” and “not okay touches” much easier to communicate in a concrete form. No-Go-Tell! teaches four fundamentals of abuse prevention: the differences between family members, friends, acquaintances and strangers; what is “okay touch” and “not okay touch”; what “private parts” are, and to whom and how to report an incident of abuse.

For men and women, we also feature gender-specific dvds on everyday hygiene practices. In each set, your students will learn how to take the perfect five-minute shower; what “good bathroom habits” are, including proper bathroom cleanup, proper hygiene with regard to urination, bowel movements, and use of toilet paper; genital cleansing; and more.

My students were glued to the screen. Love Stanfield’s humor. This is the way to teach social skills.

Using Humor to Teach Social Skills

Humor = Retention

We believe you learn best when you laugh. By making the classroom experience more comfortable and enjoyable, humor can make teaching and learning more effective, especially for the K12 segment. At Stanfield, we use humor as an integral part of our curricula.

If you as a speaker don’t help your audience to remember your lessons, then you’re wasting everyone’s time. Humor… can help accomplish that needed retention…
