It can be so frustrating to watch your child successfully sound out words, but not have a good idea of the meaning of what he or she is reading. Reading comprehension can be very difficult for students on the spectrum and schools often don’t give your child enough of the right kind of help. The good news is that parents can learn techniques to help their child become better comprehenders, even if the school isn’t providing targeted reading instruction to your child. The key is skillfully applying strategies that draw on your child’s strengths and slowly increasing his or her skills in areas that are challenging.
