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).
Dr. Blank is a brilliant developmental psychologist. She understands child development, particularly the development of language and reading abilities in children. Her reading program is unique.
Dr. Blank's program 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.
My daughter, Diane, used Dr. Blank's program. It captivated her 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.
ASDreading is based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. Marion Blank, a world-renowned literacy and language expert who developed and served as Co-Director of the Columbia University Developmental Neuropsychiatry Program for Autism and Related Disorders.
