Assisting students in understanding social interactions and controlling their emotional responses

by Kari Dunn Buron & Mitzi Curtis

Item: 9781937473075

Format: softcover
Pages: 97

Supporting emotional regulation has become a critical priority in effective programming for students with ASD. The Incredible 5-Point Scale was one of the first practical supports to help all partners recognise and teach students to become aware of their state of regulation. The Significantly Improved and Expanded Second Edition of the now classic resource expands on the core idea of the original scale by providing current clinical examples of how to use the scale across different age groups and functioning levels. New scales are offered specifically designed for young children and those individuals with more classic presentations of autism, including an expanded use of the Anxiety Curve. Another addition is a list of goals and objectives related to incorporating scales in students’ IEPs.

“The 2nd edition of The Incredible 5-Point Scale is a unique teaching resource for both professionals and families with individuals of all ages and abilities on the autism spectrum. The revised and expanded 2nd edition continues the teaching approach from the first book, adding new ideas for teaching and reinforcing social and behaviour management skills across an expanded range of ages and abilities. In addition to offering helpful insights for teaching young children, the book shows how scales can be used to teach nonverbal children or children with more classic forms of autism. Also – a huge plus – the book gives examples of how the scale can be written into an IEP.”

“This is a thoughtful update of a classic. If you are looking for ways to help autistic students to understand feelings and to implement strategies to change behaviour, I would recommend this as a fundamental part of your library. Please note that this is not a classroom management tool to rate behaviour. It is a way to help students manage their own lives.”

“This book is helpful and informative for parents trying to help children to understand their own state of mind. My son is using a 5-Point Scale at school. While it is not a magic bullet, it is helpful.”
