Download – Strategies for Great Reading Comprehension

On this episode of Special Kid School Talk Dr. Kari interviews Emily Iland, parent, author, and leader in the autism field about the best strategies for teaching children to understand what they read.  Emily’s new book, Drawing a Blank: Improving Comprehension for Readers on the Autism Spectrum, is a wealth of resources for parents and educators.  Ms. Iland is also the co-author of Autism Spectrum Disorders from A to Z (2004). Many children with special needs such as autism and learning disabilities have trouble making sense of what they read.  What makes it even more confusing is that these kids can have good “decoding” or ability to sound out the words.  Parents and teachers want strategies to help these kids!
