Kari Dunn Buron has published widely on the topic of managing stress and emotions and together with Mitzi Curtis has produced a second edition of the very successful original publication.
The 5-point scale is a method of teaching social understanding to children and young people with autism and others facing similar challenges. Once a 5-point scale is developed and understood it can be used for all manner of different issues – voice volume, frustration level and a variety of emotional responses and social interactions. The book is packed full of useful examples and ideas of how the 5-point scale has been applied.
The first edition was highly rated by borrowers, the second edition also promises to be a practical and worthwhile resource.
