In this newly updated and thoroughly revised and improved edition of the wildly popular book, The Incredible 5 Point Scale, 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.

The new edition includes refinements to the original scales, as well as many new scales specifically designed for two groups of individuals: young children and those with more classic presentations of autism, including expanded use of the Anxiety Curve. Another new feature is a list of goals and objectives for incorporating scales in students' IEPs. The CD-ROM included with purchase contains 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.
