What type of student is this reading program for?

This reading program is perfect for any young student who is just learning to read, especially those who may be dyslexic or who are not grasping the concepts of reading and writing (spelling) when compared to his or her peers. This is also a wonderful resource for children who have speech delays, auditory discrimination issues, auditory processing disorder (APD), down syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as other communicative problems. Whether you're homeschooling, supplementing your child's schooling, or getting a jump on reading skills, this program will get your child reading!

Teaching Autistic Children to Read

reading program for autism

The Autism Spectrum Disorder is so varied and reading difficulties often arise. A reading program for autism includes many of the same requirements as a successful reading program for dyslexia; specifically, the program should have the following:

  • Instruction should build upon itself in a systematic, cumulative manner.
  • Instructions should be simple and direct.
  • The program should include rewards for motivation.
  • Progress should be tracked.
  • The program should be visual.

Autistic students love the I Can Fly Reading Program, since the book exercises are simple and not frustrating. They especially love the online web app, which, according to a study in the Journal of Autism and Development Disorders, includes computer technology which these students especially favor. Your student can play the games as often as they like while earning coins. They can also view their own progress on their student metrics charts. See below for more information on this program.

How does this reading program work?

Simply open the book and present Teach the lesson from the book and then have your student do the worksheets followed by playing the online games for reinforcement. Most of the games can be played independently, and, as your student plays, data will be collected so you can see the student's progress. The app has six slots for six different students. Each student will collect coins as they play and create their own train layout, with a train that runs, and their own farm, with animals they can feed.

Using this Program Remotely or in the Classroom

Watch the video below to learn about our classroom/distance learning tools.

Whether you're teaching a class with a Smart Board, or tutoring or teaching remotely, we have the tools that will make your job easier. There's no reason to make your own slides, and little to no lesson planning is needed.

Since holding your students' attention is more difficult when teaching remotely, lesson plans should be:

highly structured and well planned,

vary in their presentation, and

be clear and concise.

The slides present the lesson in a fun, colorful manner with many illustrations, and the online web app provides the repetitive review needed.

  2. Lesson Slides PDF - this includes only the lesson slides for the program. It does not include the workbook pages.

The lesson slides can be used to present the lessons using a Smart Board or screen sharing software for distance learning. It can also be used on a laptop or tablet for one-on-one tutoring or teaching a small group. The slides illustrate the lessons in an organized, explicit manner, encouraging student participation.

Note that each student should have their own workbook for a complete Orton-Gillingham approach. If you are using the Teacher's Manual, the workbook images are included so that you do not need a book of your own. If you are using the lesson slides PDF, then you should have your own workbook.
