I think you took away some of the biggest ideas from all of the articles and videos. I too took the same things away from the materials. Students with ASD often struggle with reading comprehension, which leads some to believe in the presence of hyperlexia in individuals with ASD. Also, students with ASD lack certain social understandings that hinder their comprehension of stories. Also, students with ASD are very focused on small details and often times miss the big picture.

What do you think we as future and practicing teachers can do to help make reading comprehension meaningful to our students with ASD?
