Examines and rationalizes the instructional strategies used to teach young children with autism early literacy skills using a balanced, multilevel approach to reading. Explores the five domains of reading in a way that brings light to the areas of reading deficits in young children diagnosed with autism. Additionally, attempts to bring the concept of best reading practices to the attention of educators who serve children with autism. The project provides a handbook of literacy activities geared towards children with autism and other developmental disabilities.
