I have listed some cleaning washing and ironing resources that could be used with adults with learning difficulties.
Skills Workshop has a literacy based resource called The Home (milestone 8/ Entry 1 )
exercise 2 has pictures of cleaning items to match to words
There is a US worksheet on washing labels which also has a good idea about sending a skills sheet home for the student to practise their skills at home (page 8)
Video Jug has a good straightforward film on how to use a washing machine
Heinemann has sheet of washing symbols to be found in their free sample section literacy pack
This is part of the Sure Skills literacy and numeracy resource packs.
