Synopsis

A 5 is Against the Law! by Kari Dunn Buron

Kari Dunn Buron has done it again. Building on her popular 5-Point Scale, A 5 Is Against the Law! takes a narrower look at challenging behavior with a particular focus on behaviors that can spell trouble for adolescents and young adults who have difficulty understanding and maintaining social boundaries. Using a direct and simple style with lots of examples and hands-on activities, A 5 Is Against the Law! speaks directly to adolescents and young adults. The notion behind the 5-point scale is to take an idea or behavior and break it into five parts to make it easier to understand the different degrees of beahvior and, eventually, the consequences of one's behavior. A section is also devoted to anxiety and how to cope with this emotion before it begins to escalate, often leading to impulsive and unacceptable behavior. Throughout the book, the reader is encouraged to think about and create his own behavior and anxiety scale that applies to his particular emotions and situations.

Reviews

?This is a great practical guide that will facilitate insight into social conventions and regulations. As a result of completing the activities, a person with ASD will be better able to avoid causing offense or getting into trouble with the law... -- Tony Attwood, Ph.D., clinical psychologist The Asperger's Syndrome Clinic, Australia
