Memorization or real reading?
Sun May 31, 2015 13:21

Hey Angie,
I think that's a good observation--knowing your students would certainly help you know when they are reciting from memory and when they are working on decoding skills. Hopefully we will learn a bit more about that in our course work here or in the future. As far as working on comprehension, lots of our classmates have hit on that same point and there seems to be a lot of consensus about using visual cues as an option. With my small base of knowledge about this topic so far, it's hard to say for sure but based on what I know about children with ASD I do feel that sensory input like visual cues and even tactile objects are a good way to engage these learners. Maybe pausing when reading aloud and using objects and pictures to supplement the text would help the students read deeper into the text they are working with.
