This much-waited, second edition of the wildly popular Incredible 5-Point Scale, is as the title suggests, "significantly 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 the 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.Another welcome 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.
I am often disappointed when reading sequels or seeing them at a theatre. Version 2.0s rarely live up to the original, but Buron and Curtis' Incredible 5-Point Scale is an exception. This book exceeds my expectations - it provides information on this evidence-based practice (EBP) for learners across the age range and across the spectrum. -- Brenda Smith Myles, PhD "Consultant, Ziggurat Group"
