  • Age: 6 years and over

    This is a new series of intervention material entitled “Development of Reading Comprehension in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder”. It is recommended for children who have severe difficulties in understanding texts. It consists of three parts with a brief theoretical background and various practice activities grouped in levels of increasing difficulty. In the third part of the series, you will find seven such levels. The material has been developed and tested in clinical practice with excellent results, depending on learners’ potential.

    Learners with autism can read and process written language in a fluent way, in contrast to children with dyslexia who often try hard to decode written language. However, these children are not always able to approach semantic meaning in the same way. They can have trouble visualizing action and understanding the social interactions upon which many storylines rely. A detail might absorb all their attention and prevent them from fully processing the rest of the text.

    Whether you are a specialist or simply a parent, you will find this e-book very useful!

    1. According to scientific research, children acquire decoding and reading comprehension skills at the same time, but each skill develops independently of the other. Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) usually develop decoding skills, but have difficulty with reading comprehension. They can identify words relatively more easily than understanding what they have read. This may be attributed to the fact that comprehension is a more abstract skill than decoding.

      The third part of the e-book “Developing Reading Comprehension in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder” is intended for children with severe difficulties in comprehending texts. It proposes seven levels of intervention, selected based on scaling difficulty.
