This unique hands-on activity helps students who are highly anxious cope with their stress by systematizing social and emotional information. Using this self-contained product, the student literally sorts cards describing highly stressful situations into colorful pockets designating stress levels, ranging from 5-1, as a first step in changing the way he or she thinks about and responds to emotions such as anxiety, sadness and anger. A laminated erasable page and blank cards enable parents and teachers to individualize this innovative program. Suggestions for how to include it as part of a functional behavior assessment and a problem-solving activity are included.
Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder of Social Thinking, says:
"Dunn-Buron and Curtis' 5 point scale is an important tool for any teachers tool box. This product teaches students how to become more familiar with this tool in a game type format. It also has a really cool 5 point scale board that allows for many creative applications beyond just using in the game format."
