About ASD Reading

ASD Reading is a groundbreaking reading program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Adapted from Dr. Marion Blank’s award-winning and patented “6-SIM” Six Skill Integrated Method for teaching reading & writing with comprehension, ASD Reading holds the key to opening up the world of literacy to children with ASD – even when they are non-verbal (i.e., non-speaking).
ASD is a neurodevelopment disorder that leads to impaired language, communication and social skills. Estimates are that approximately 80 million people are affected by autism around the globe. Shockingly, over the past decade increases of between 50% to 2000% in diagnoses of ASD have been reported world-wide. Tragically, the majority of children diagnosed with ASD never gain the ability to read with any degree of fluency or utility.
readingCurrent reading education relies on methods that do not work for children on the spectrum with the result that the majority never gain the ability to read with fluency or understanding. However, Dr. Blank, the inventor of ASD Reading, has designed revolutionary reading instructions methods that can be used to teach any child with ASD to read and write – even those who are non-verbal (i.e., non-speaking).
Dr. Marion Blank is a world-renowned literacy and language expert on the faculty of Columbia University where she developed and served as Co-Director of the Columbia University Developmental Neuropsychiatry Program for Autism and Related Disorders – one of the only programs in the world which successfully teaches children with ASD to read. Dr. Blank is a recipient of the Upton Sinclair Award which honors individuals who have made a significant contribution to education.

My Thoughts

My son is 15. He also has autism. Getting him to read is impossible. Seriously, impossible. He gets angry when he doesn’t know words, which lead to meltdowns. But, I decided to try the ASD Reading program anyways. I figured at this point, it couldn’t hurt. Turns out that he loves it! He did the placement test, and we know that he reads at a lower level.
The program is fun, which keeps his engagement. The little dinosaur that is on there is very cute, and entertaining. The program has controls, so it can be paused if a break is needed. This is great, because my son’s attention span is very very short.  The lessons are easy to navigate, and interesting. My son really likes it, and to me, that tells me it’s a great program!
