The lessons in the book are fairly intuitive and easy to work through. For younger students with special needs, the lessons may be a bit complex and will have to be watered down some to help them make a connection. However, in general, the lessons provide ample opportunity for teachers, as well as parents, to have good dialogue with children regarding appropriate behavioral expectations in day-to-day life. The lessons can be as elaborate or as simple as teachers would like, depending upon the students/ needs.
