Amanda, I found it interesting that it took so long for students with ASD to be identified with difficulties in reading comprehension as well. Although no assumptions can be made regarding students abilities solely passed on diagnosis, students with ASD often have these difficulties. Failing to notice this impedes them from developing skills that they can use to further their reading skills, just as you said, and that can have detrimental effects on a student's reading ability. Teachers must address these issues as soon as possible so that student's are given the skills necessary to overcome them.
