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.
