I am studying reading disabilities in typical elementary learners and it's interesting to see how some things are exactly the same for both learners. The shared reading is a huge part in the development process and the only difference is that for the ASD kids you are interacting them with every page.

          I would like to know more about how EC students are treated differently in other states. I was surprised when you said "most teachers here do not have training on how to modify for the needs of these ... more
