Jun 22, 2012 -- 2:44 pm
From, an interview of Kari Dunn-Buron from Chloe Rothschild.
Chloe: Hi Kari, thank you for taking the time to answer these interview questions. Can you please tell our readers what the five point scale is?
Kari Dunn Buron: The Incredible 5-Point scale is a system for teaching social and emotional concepts. The main objective is to teach social and emotional information in concrete, systematic, and non-judging ways. Students who have poor skills in the area of social thinking or emotional regulation often exhibit challenging behaviors, particularly when presented with difficult social situations. In the scale, teachers and parents can find a very simple yet effective way to teach social rules and expectations; problem solve behavioral responses of others; trouble shoot past and future social scenarios; and create plans for self-management. to read the entire interview, please click:
