Requesting Title: Incredible 5-Point Scale Assisting students with autism spectrum disorders in understanding social interactions and controlling their emotions
Author: Buron, Kari Dunn; Curtis Mitzi
Published: 2004
Summary:
In this must-have resource, "two teachers from Minnesota" share their successful use of the simple concept of 5-point scales to help students understand and control their emotional reactions to everyday events that might otherwise set in emotion escalating reactions. Whether it is inappropriate touching, obsessions, yelling, hitting or making hurtful statements to classmates, this clearly illustrated book shows how to break down a given behavior and, with the student’s active participation, develop a unique scale that identifies the problem and, just as important, suggests alternative, positive behaviors at each level of the scale.
