    In my new job I am teaching high school students with high functioning autism.

    One of the periods I teach is Daily Living Skills.

    This is basically a social skills class. What would you use with these students?

    I will have 12 boys with high functioning autism.

    If you have any funding, Attainment has some really good Social Skills curriculums.
    Some people like Skillstreaming the Adolescent, which can be purchased very cheaply on Amazon. It's a good idea for topics to cover, but I don't like the program itself.
    I'm struggling to find anything worthwhile that is free.

    I agree with Waterfall Lady's suggestions, and James Stanfield also has some good materials if there is $$ to buy.
