Autism and Reading Comprehension: Ready-to-Use Lesson Plans for Teachers

Author(s): Joseph Porter

The predictable format, repetition, and routine of these lessons will create a relaxed learning environment, while the variations in the topics will hold students’ attention and help them generalize the reading skills they need to succeed!

Starting with Level 1 (The Cat) and ending with Level 9 (The Lizard), special-educator Joseph Porter has developed an amazing 90 hours of animal-themed, whole-group instruction. There are two student worksheets for each of nine animals, totaling eighteen worksheets. Each worksheet has four variations, and there is a ready-to-go lesson plan for each one!

There are also two sentence-building exercises for each animal theme, which will build students’ observation skills and help them transform those skills into conversation and written language. In addition to the step-by-step lesson plans, Joseph provides a detailed description of what the lessons will look and feel like in the classroom, complete with valuable, first-hand advice. In the back, you’ll find an appendix with numerous suggestions for complementary activities for each animal theme, so you can supplement on the “off” days with art projects, music, books, and videos.

There is even a section containing Data-Collection Sheets, assessment forms that will help you record students’ progress, per IEP standards.

This is an absolutely wonderful resource. I have been working with this book for only four weeks and I have already been positively surprised. The children I work with are already beginning to understand, that the answers they give in reading comprehension sessions, should reflect what they see in the pictures and the texts in front of them. I also love the strategies suggested for helping children choose from a variety of words to create their own individual sentences about a topic.

Wonderful curriculum resource for homeschooling. My daughter would literally get zeros on comprehension questions over passages she could easily read. Now she is able to complete these with 100% accuracy most of the time and doing much better with other stories and comprehension questions. We've almost finished this book. Please, Please, Please publish a second volume.
