This project was initiated in order to help general and special education teachers in elementary classrooms with successful strategies, to assess and teach students with autism how to better comprehend text. The unit developed does two things: one, it educates teachers and students on a number of strategies to use in reading comprehension, and two, it helps students with autism gain important social skills. Each lesson is designed to incorporate Colorado Content Reading and Writing Standards, with aligned Social and Access skills.
