If you are a parent or therapist struggling to regulate behavioral challenges, this book is a great resource. Written by Kari Dunn Buron, A 5 is Against the Law aims to help students understand behavior consequences and build self regulation strategies using a simple five point scale.
This book is written for teens and adults with autism to help them visually learn to solve social problems and overcome behavioral challenges. It is filled with sample scales that teens can immediately apply to situations they face in their everyday life.
Written to empower readers, students will also learn how to problem solve their own situations using the scale. By teaching readers how their actions affect the world and others, this book aims to create a greater sense of self-awareness in order to facilitate self-regulation and responsibility.
Great for teaching social boundaries, empowering self advocacy, managing anxiety, and promoting independence. Use this book with intermediate and secondary students in inclusion settings or self contained classrooms.
