Based on the book Drawing a Blank: Improving Comprehension for Readers on the Autism Spectrum, presenters will address social communication issues such as the inability to read the emotional states of others, or to identify the intentions of others, and the subsequent impact on reading comprehension. Numerous comprehension strategies will be shared throughout the day along with evidenced based literacy strategies. Participants will leave with useful tools that will support students’ reading comprehension.

The purpose of collecting data is to provide objective evidence of a program’s effectiveness and to guide instructional decisions. Educators can ensure that they provide meaningful instruction by collecting useful data on students’ progress and then use the data to make instructional decisions. In other words, with meaningful data, educators can adjust their instruction in response to students’ performance.
