Social Behavior and Self-Management: 5-Point Scales for Adolescents and Adults (Paperback)
Building on the success on the legendary Incredible 5-Point Scale: Assisting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in Understanding Social Interactions and Controlling Their Emotional Responses, by Buron and Curtis, this book also uses scales as a way of explaining social and emotional concepts to individuals who have difficulty understanding such information but have a relative strength in understanding systems. The 5-point scales can be used to increase communication between the person on the autism spectrum and their support person. The result? It can increase self-management skills and, once learned, it can serve as an excelled self-advocacy tool. Foreword by Stephen Shore, EdD.
