The Incredible 5-Point Scale is a visual strategy on a coloured scale that helps people with or without with autism learn about regulating emotions. Sometimes children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder or ASD seem to go from calm to meltdown very quickly.
The idea of the scale tool is to help people with ASD tto understand their emotions and put them in processing their feelings.
The 5 Point Scale is also used to teach strategies for managing difficult emotions. As difficult emotions can range from just about any social interaction, the tool can be used in many ways.
