Editorial Reviews

Review

I'm a long time fan of the 5-Point Scale. In five words, it's respectful, thoughtful, flexible, versatile, and practical. In a few words, it's a classic instructional tool. This second edition is as beautifully organized as the first; easy to read and packed with new insights and ideas. It's proof that even a classic, like the original Incredible 5-Point Scale, can be both timeless and timely! A great resource just got better! --Carol Gray, author of Social Stories and Comic Strip Conversations

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 address this great need. In this second edition, Kari Dunn Buron and Mitzi Curtis have once again provided us with a critical tool to help all partners recognize and teach students to become aware of their state of regulation, and, therefore, to help all students to be more available for learning and engaging. --Barry M. Prizant, PhD, CCC-SLP, director, Childhood Communication Services, and adjunct professor, Center for the Study of Human Development, Brown University

If you want to teach a child social and interpersonal abilities and emotional self-control, this book will become your primary resource in the classroom and at home. The strategies are simple, clear, flexible, and fun, and are based on the authors' increasing practical experience. I particularly appreciated how the activities can be personalized include graphics and humor, and combine social and emotional themes. The scale is genuinely incredible. --Tony Attwood, PhD, director, The Minds and Hearts Clinic, Brisbane, Australia, and author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

Format: Paperback
This second edition of THE INCREDIBLE 5-POINT SCALE book is a great resource for those in the education field and families touched by autism. This book expands on the first book by including new ideas for teaching and also rewarding behavior and social management skills. The book details how scales can be used to teach individuals who are non-verbal or who are on the more severe side of the spectrum. This technique is so basic and yet so easy-to-use and hands-on that anyone can start using the techniques immediately (either with a pad of paper and pencil or by simply printing off scales from the included CD).

The table of contents includes:

Introduction (using the scale, ultimate goals,a few personal examples)
The "Tried & True" Scales from the First Edition
***Volume Control
***Hurtful Words
***Obsessions
***Home Scale
***Meeting Friends
***Control
***Taking Perspectives
***Touching Rules
***Understanding Feelings
***Monitoring Anxiety
Scales for Young Children
***Visual/Picture Scales
Scales for Students with More Classic Forms of Autism
***Concrete, Activity-Related Scales
***Anxiety-Related Scales
More "Pretty Good" Scale Ideas
Sample Goals and Objectives RElated to the Use of the 5-Point Scale

Also included is a CD which contains blank scales making it easy to create useful resources for your classroom or family member. Within minutes of opening up this book, you can come away with hands-on useful strategies to put to work immediately. These can be used by teachers, paraprofessionals and other campus staff members (like school psychologists and therapists) as well as readily usable by families in the home setting.

I would recommend this book for any teacher with students on the spectrum, as well as students with behavior difficulties.
I started using the first edition and liked it, now I am using the second edition with the printable CD and LOVE it. The CD lets you customize the zones to fit individual needs.

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 behavior, I would recommend this as a fundamental part of your library.Please note that this is not a classroom management tool to rate behavior. It is a way to help students manage their own lives.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Friedman on May 6, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I read the "peek inside" pages of this book I was very excited because it exactly addressed an issue (volume control) I was having with one of my children. It's a very simple concept and I didn't even feel like I needed to buy the book after the "peek" because it is so obvious and easy to extrapolate without the guidance of the book. But I bought the book anyway because I thought it would be helpful to have the cd to make my own charts. I was very disappointed that the cd contains only PDF versions of the charts, which means I can't easily edit them to suit my needs (which include adding translation, as my son -and his teacher - reads another language better. If the CD had included editable format I would have given this product a 4.

I purchased this book hoping to get tips on creating a 5 point scale for helping my child recognize and problem-solve their escalation issues. It has a great explanation and anecdotes of situations in which it helped children/teens/adults in visualizing their emotional states. The whole concept is a great strategy, first in creating a scale for emotional states or graphing escalation and as detailed as creating rubric for expected behaviors. However, I was a little disappointed that they don't parallel other social thinking products such as the Zones of Regulation. We were incorporating both systems and if your child is very visual and rigid, this can throw you/them off.

No CD came with the book-- just the paperback book.
I purchased this book to help a child with autism so that we can work on managing his behaviors. The scales are a nice visual and can be incorporated into a classroom or home setting.
