From what I've gathered through the readings, it seems that fiction texts are difficult for students with ASD to comprehend because they struggle with inferencing and connection with abstract ideas. In regards to enhancing comprehension of fiction texts in students with ASD, drawing on prior background knowledge and relating the abstract ideas to real world situations seems to be very effective. Also, pre-teaching is a great strategy that can be used in order to better prepare our students with ASD about what the fiction text is going to be about.
