Customer Review: Amazon Customer - Being able to read and write is a basic life skill and as essential for children with autism as it is for anyone else. But those with autism spectrum disorders require approaches to acquiring literacy skills that are educationally classified as Special Education services and techniques.

Each individual chapter focuses upon specific learn objectives. Vocabulary terms, chapter highlights, chapter review questions, chapter review answers, and a glossary, combine to make "Quality Literacy Instruction For Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders" an extraordinarily useful instructional guide and manual for educators and is a core addition to professional and academic library reference collections.
