Workshop Description:
Many children with Autism demonstrate uneven skill development. Parents and teachers are excited about their fluency, but frustrated with their lack of comprehension. Our team had the opportunity to be trained by Christi Carnahan and Pam Williamson on Literacy for Students with ASD. 

This training will focus on strategies for students who have grade level or higher fluency, but struggle with reading comprehension and written expression.  We will start with response systems to teach your student how to respond to a question.  Video examples of teaching procedures will be shared.  We will discuss writing strategies and how to shape single words into sentences based on Dr. Pennington’s work.  Strategies will be geared to the primary years of elementary with a couple strategies for 4th and 5th grade.  Strategies can also benefit students in an alternate curriculum.  The team of presenters will share their perspectives on implementing strategies in a general education setting.

A narrative and an expository text that your student will be using either in the classroom or in intervention the following week or two after the training.  You will also want to bring student's data.  Data that would be helpful: text leveling, MAP data, RCBM/Maze, or other reading data that you have on your student.  

Participants will learn: 
The think, think, choose strategy
Dialogic Reading
Strategies to increase student's reading comprehension
How to shape writing from single words to sentences
How to expand writing using pictures and technology

Who Should Attend?
Resource Teachers, SLP, General Education Teachers, Reading Specialists, Psychologists, Parents, Administrators, Alternate Curriculum Teachers and other Professionals working with students with Autism who are struggling with reading comprehension and written expression.
