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 the children to achieve success - even when they are non-verbal (i.e., non-speaking).
ASD Reading has transformed the teaching of reading... The program is absolutely outstanding -- not simply in teaching reading, but also in enabling children to master and expand their knowledge of English. It does so by steadily integrating spoken and written language. No other program with which I’m familiar is comparable in teaching these vital skills. I believe that central to the program's success is: (i) its steady integration of spoken and written language, and (ii) its unique incorporation of "immediate interactive feedback." Research has shown that this type of feedback is critically important to engaging the student and thereby to enhancing effective learning. It regularly provides an immediate response to what the student does, and it offers clear, simple direction to overcome any errors that occur.
ASD Reading had a tremendous impact on our daughter, Julia's, language. Julia is autistic and the program readily engages her. It's amazing how a system dealing with the complexities of language can be so simple for children to follow!
ASD Reading is a daily necessity in my special education classroom. It represents a major evolution in the teaching of reading and writing for children on the spectrum. Thank you for this incredible program.
ASD Reading captivated my daughter's imagination and taught her to read, to the amazement of her school teachers. Everything about it was so logical and it also set her up to develop all other academic skills.
