This university-level textbook for pre-service special education professionals brings together 19 experts from both the autism and reading fields to provide detailed guidance on how to teach literacy to students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The book offers a conceptual framework for understanding the complexity of literacy, an explanation of where and why students with ASD need literacy support, and how to address their individual instructional needs. It includes crucial information on the key elements of balanced literacy instruction: phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing. Each chapter features case studies that illustrate key teaching constructs, tables that summarize key concepts, and recommendations for hands-on activities for applying the information/strategies presented in the corresponding chapter.

Quality Literacy Instruction for Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders brings theory and research to practice to fulfill the mandate for evidence-based practice and illustrate the ways in which effective literacy skills enhance the quality of life of all individuals, including those with autism spectrum disorders.
