Incredible 5 Point Scale: The Significantly Improved and Expanded Second Edition; Assisting Students in Understanding Social Interactions and Controlling their Emotional Responses, is the much-awaited, second edition of the wildly popular Incredible 5-Point Scale is significantly improved and expanded.
Using the same practical and user-friendly format as the first edition, Buron and Curtis let readers benefit from work done with the scales over the past 10 years. Improvements have been made to the original scales including expanding the use of the Anxiety Curve. Also, lots of new scales specifically designed for young children and those with more classic presentations of autism have been added.
Another welcome addition is a list of goals and objectives related to incorporating scales in students' IEPs.
A CD comes with the book that includes blank scales, small portable scales and worksheets for easy duplication. As in their other writings, the authors emphasize the importance of self-management and self-regulation, two evidence-based practices. (Softcover; 97 pages.)
