Discover the Easiest Way to Teach Life Skills!

Finally, a Comprehensive Life Skills Curriculum!

An Instructor-Led, Video-Based Life Skills Curriculum

It’s been said that if a picture a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million. Never has that been more true than in the area of life skills, where video modeling is THE most effective method for teaching these critical life, literacy, health, math, safety, social, transportation, and work skills.

With Conover Resources for Life Skills, you have access to our comprehensive video library to teach and re-enforce these critical skills. Conover Resources for Life Skills is the perfect tool for either individual or group instruction in person or via distance learning.

Why Life Skills?

When we think about life skills, we sometimes forget that tasks we consider basic can be challenging for others. We have always held this challenge in mind for over 30 years to provide clear, straight-forward information to help learners function independently in their homes, schools, communities, and workplaces.
