I have been searching for some time for a reading program that can help reach children like my son who struggle with autism. My son is now 20 years old but as an advocate for other parents, I feel it is critical that I remain informed about what works and what doesn’t. After all, parenting is difficult enough – we need to share our knowledge.
This reading program is great to keep a child engaged in their learning. It is a fun way to learn with its vibrant colors, different strategies and happy milestones after each lesson.
ASD Reading is a patented, research-based method for teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to read, write and comprehend. Current reading education relies on methods that do not work for children on the spectrum with the result that the majority never gain the ability to read with fluency or understanding. However, the innovative content and methods of ASD Reading enable children to achieve success – even when they are non-verbal (i.e., non-speaking).
- Research-based and incredibly effective
Requires no prerequisites – all children can use the program
Provides customized instruction that adapts to each child’s specific skills and needs
Easy to implement – every parent can use it
Systematically assesses a child’s skills and overcomes error patterns and difficulties
Works with every device: Windows, Mac, iPad, Android, & Chromebooks
Teaches students to read & write with comprehension at a 3rd grade level in only 12-18 months
Additionally, my husband and I work in education. It is important that we know how to reach all children and meet their individual needs. Life is not a one size fits all situation.
As I review this program I feel like it isn’t just great for autistic children but also for persons (young or adult) who are trying to learn English as a second language. Learning a language is difficult but if you break it down into bite sized chunks it becomes so much more manageable.
