Books for Teachers

When I started this blog, I could not find any blogs or 
books that focused on reading for kids with autism. 
Given how many of our kids have autism and struggle
with reading, this was a significant gap. So I've been
blogging for over a year and now there are three
books for teachers as well, one from 2010, and two
from 2011. 
Autism & Reading Comprehension is a set of
lesson plans with texts and questions for 
kids with autism in group reading. Currently
my boy does something similar, reads a question,
reads a passage, answers the question.
How Do I Teach This Kid to Read?
looks at teaching beginning readers with
autism and discusses the differences 
between neurotypical learners and kids 
with autism.
Diagnosis Autism - Fun with Reading
is an e-book with animal stories that 
suggests you can use reading to teach
concepts like math. I haven't peeked into it.
