Resource Guide to Reading Comprehension for Students with Autism

Difficulty in comprehending and deriving meaning from text can make reading, at the very least, frustrating. For school-aged students, comprehension is vital to accessing the core curriculum and progressing toward completing the mandatory high school A-G content requirements for earning a diploma. Students with ASD often display significant deficits in reading comprehension, having difficulty making meaning of or retaining what they read. The product of this project, the Resource Guide to Reading Comprehension for Students with Autism, is a reading comprehension resource guide for parents and teachers to help students with ASD to develop critical components of literacy competence.
