Book - A 5 Is Against the Law! Social Boundaries: Straight Up! An Honest Guide for Teens and Young Adults.

by: Kari Dunn Buron

About the author:

Since 1995, I have been employing young adults with Asperger Syndrome at my summer camp. Over that time period, one young man was fired from his job for stalking a coworker, one young man was fired for having a tantrum on the job, and a young woman had her driver's license taken away because of road rage. In addition, in recent years, while working with students K-12, I have saw a dramatic increase in the numbers of students with Asperger Syndrome who were being referred to sexual offender programs for sexual harassment. In all cases, issues of social skills, especially boundaries, were both. And in all cases, both parents and teachers were desperate for a method that could effectively teach these students the basics of social boundaries.
I wrote my new book, A 5 Is Against the Law! with these individuals in mind. I am hopeful that professionals and parents will use the book as a workbook either 1:1 or in small groups. The approach used puts grey thinking social information, which poses special challenges for individuals with autism spectrum disorders, into a black-and-white systematic format for clearer understanding. In addition, the book directly relates the person's behavior to possible outcomes that could affect personal freedom in hopes of increasing his or her motivation to learn.

The ultimate objective of this approach is for readers to better understand how their personal behavior impacts how others perceive and judge them, and how that judgment, fair or not, can impact their lives.

Building on Kari Dunn Buron s popular The Incredible 5-Point Scale, this book 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. A section of the book is devoted to how to cope with anxiety 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 on an anxiety scale that applies to his particular emotions and situations.





A 5 Is Against the Law! offers in a creative and interesting format an honest and down-to-earth look at the kinds of social situations many teens and young adults struggle with. It is written in a very user-friendly style that readers will relate to. The suggestions and activities are excellent. I hope this book is a bestseller. –Liane Holliday Willey, Ed.D., author. At last! A meaningful, yet humorous, and easy-to-use intervention that identifies and explains how to handle different levels of anxiety, frustration, and anger. This workbook is a boondoggle for people with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning autism as well as those supporting them in understanding and successfully living with these strong and often confounding emotions. –Stephen M. Shore, M.A., author, consultant and presenter on autism. 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. Kari s excellent program will be used with people who have high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome at our clinic in Australia. –Tony Attwood, Ph.D., clinical psychologist, The Asperger’s Syndrome Clinic, Australia
