Who better to create a teaching curriculum than a teacher who is facing the very same challenges? When he began teaching, Joseph Porter was shocked to discover that he couldn't find any effective reading-comprehension curricula for students with autism spectrum disorders. Through daily trial and error, he developed effective lesson plans. Now, he shares his success with his fellow educators. This book includes over 90 hours of easy-to-follow lessons, student worksheets, and countless ideas for extending and customizing the material.

Review quote

This book is packed with practical, easy-to-use material. It is also an unbelievable value. The author is a teacher who had to figure these things out on his own, without the benefit of excellent materials like this book. He created this material, test-drove it in his classroom, adapting and fine tuning it until it was ready to be shared. He wrote it to make teaching reading to a child with autism easier for you and for the child. Highly recommended for every teacher of children with autism. Five stars out of five.
