In order to include students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the general classroom, teachers need to consider the unique challenges experienced by individuals with ASD. Students with ASD often struggle with text comprehension as well as generalization. This session will consider the text comprehension research for students with ASD. Participants will be provided with examples of how to implement strategies to increase comprehension during core content instruction. Participants will learn techniques for programming for effective generalization across people, settings and materials, with an emphasis on teaching individuals with ASD to access the general classroom and increase independence.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Participants will learn effective text comprehension strategies across core content areas for students with ASD.
2. Participants will learn how to plan for generalization of text comprehension skills, particularly generalization to the general classroom.
3. Participants will learn strategies for adapting text-based content area instruction for learners with ASD in the inclusive setting.
