    Kimberly A. Henry is a special educator with over twenty years experience working with students with autism and other developmental disorders. She received her master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University. After beginning her teaching career as a general education teacher in middle school, she switched to special education. Kim taught special education at the middle school and preschool levels, and in an elementary specialized autism program.
     
    Ms. Henry is the noted author of the "How Do I Teach This Kid?" series, through which she provides practical, easy-to-implement ideas for using visual strategies to teach children with autism or other developmental challenges. In addition to being a university adjunct instructor, Kim currently works as a teacher specialist, providing technical assistance and mentoring to teachers of children with autism from preschool through elementary grades.

     

    Reading is so much more than reciting words on a page!
     
    Reading provides personal enjoyment, access to information, and opens doors to opportunities throughout life, both recreational and occupational. Reading helps us grow and vicariously experience things we are curious about, and dream about.
     
    But for many young children with autism, reading is often a factual memorization of letters and words. The playful, imaginative qualities of reading may be missed in favor of the repetitive, predictable alphabet and visual appearance of words on a page.

     

    This book presents simple instructional strategies that can be used to help develop early literacy skills in young children with autism. Award-winning author Kimberly Henry provides dozens of fine-tuned, easily adaptable activities that teachers and parents can implement separately or in infinite combinations. Included are units on phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Kim also lists numerous other resources you can use to supplement the lessons.
     
    Best of all, this book comes with a FREE CD of printable, visual tools, such as:
    • ABC Books
    • Text-Picture Matches
    • Songs, Chants, and Poems
    • Word Webs
    • Visual Organizers
    • Sentence Builders
    • And many more!
