The Incredible 5-Point Scale (Second Edition)
Assisting Students in Understanding Social Interactions and Controlling Their Emotional Responses. This much-awaited, second edition of the wildly popular Incredible 5-Point Scale is, as the title suggests, "significantly improved and expanded." Using the same practical and user-friendly format as the first edition, the authors let readers benefit from work done with the scales over the past 10 years, to result in refinements to the original scales, now considered "classics" in homes and classrooms across the country and abroad, as well as lots of 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.

This is a must-have resource which shows how the use of a simple 5-point scale can help children understand and control their emotional reactions to everyday events. The book shows how to break down a given behavior and, with the child's active participation, develop a scale that identifies the problem and suggests alternative, positive behaviors at each point of the scale.

This simple strategy helps children, particularly those with autism or Asperger's, understand social encounters and control their emotional and behavioral reactions.

Whether the problem is inappropriate touching, obsessions, yelling, hitting, or making hurtful statements to classmates, this clearly illustrated book shows how to define the problem in increments on a 5-point scale and, just as important, suggests alternative, positive behaviors at each point on the scale.

The 5-Point Scale & Anxiety Curve Poster
This 24" x 36" full-color, dual-sided, erasable poster is the perfect visual support to accompany the bestselling The Incredible 5-Point Scale.

The Check-In side allows students to identify the state of their emotions at various points of the day. The Anxiety Curve side offers a simple system for visually categorizing the levels of anxiety and accompanying behavior.

A "5" Could Make Me Lose Control!
An activity-based method for evaluating and supporting highly anxious students. This hands-on activity helps students who are highly anxious cope with their stress by classifying social and emotional information and analyzing how best to act.

How Does It Work?

1. Introduce the stressor scale (points 1 - 5).
  • I can handle this.
  • This might make me feel uncomfortable.
  • This could make me really nervous.
  • This can make me MAD!
  • This can make me lose control!
2. Instruct students to sort stressor cards and read them aloud, one at a time.
3. Let the student put it in the appropriate pocket that best describes the level of stress he/she might feel in the given situation.
4. Ask the student to explain why he/she placed the card in that slot as they think about emotions like anxiety, sadness and anger.

Includes picture word cards making the activity suitable for younger children and for those with communication challenges.

The kit also includes suggestions for how to include the process as a part of an effective behavior assessment and a problem-solving activity.

This interactive way of using the 5-point scale offers a very concrete way of helping children, particularly those with autism spectrum disorders, to understand and control their emotional responses.
