5 Is Against the Law!: Social Boundaries: Straight Up! by Kari Dunn Buron
Autism Society Award Winner
Building on Kari Dunn Buron’s popular book, The Incredible 5-Point Scale, this title takes a look at challenging behavior with a particular focus on social behaviors that can be problematic 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. A section of the book is devoted to how to cope with social anxiety before it begins to escalate, often leading to impulsive and unacceptable social behavior. Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to think about their own behavior and create an anxiety scale that applies to his or her particular emotions and situations.
