Reading to young children is a developmentally appropriate practice common in many homes and early childhood classrooms. Shared reading is also an excellent context to teach important early literacy skills that can provide the foundation for reading success. Many children with autism and other developmental disabilities may require behavioral supports and reading modifications to encourage active participation in shared book reading. This webinar will cover practical, evidence-based strategies that caregivers, teachers, and other adults can immediately implement to increase the quantity and quality of shared reading experiences.
