This much-awaited second edition of the 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, 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. Blank scales, small portable scales and worksheets for easy duplication are available at http://www.aapcpublishing.net/9936
As in their other writings, the authors emphasise the importance 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"
"If you want to teach a child social and interpersonal abilities and emotional self-control, this book will become your primary resource in the classroom and at home. The strategies are simple, clear, flexible and fun, and are based on the authors' increasing practical experience." -- Tony Attwood, PhD, Director "The Minds and Hearts Clinic, Brisbane, Australia"
