Overview

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, Buron and Curtis 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. It also delves into lots of new scales that are specifically designed for two groups of individuals: young children and those with more classic presentations of autism spectrum disorder, including the expanded use of the Anxiety Curve. Another welcomed addition is a list of goals and objectives related to incorporating scales in students' IEPs. As in their other writings, the authors emphasize the importance of self-management and self-regulation, two evidence-based practices.
