"Building on the success of the legendary Incredible 5-Point Scale 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 spectrum and their support person. It can increase self-management skills and, once learned, it can serve as an excellent self-advocacy tool. As such, it is invaluable at school, on the job and in the community." - PUBLISHERS WEBSITE
