Transition planning, at any age, is challenging and is often made more so by our limited understanding as to what skills are central to effective living as an adult. Thankfully, we now have Essential for Living to guide us in that process.

Comprehensive, thoughtful, and user-friendly, Essential for Living provides Parents, Educators, Behavior Analysts, and Transition Specialists a much needed road map to identify and develop those skills and abilities that have a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of their students and clients. Essential for Living should be the first resource you reach for at the start of transition planning and then kept close at hand throughout the process. Highly recommended.

I really think that Essential for Living is an important move forward. We are requiring its use as part of assessment and programming across our entire population of children and adults. I’ve been very pleased with the results so far.

Thank you for making an assessment tool that looks at EVERYTHING that must be considered for a learner that needs more functional, adaptive skills in their life.  I have to admit…when I first started using the assessment, I was overwhelmed…mostly because there is a plethora of information.
