The SRA Reading Mastery - Fast Cycle Series has been critically praised for its effectiveness in teaching students with Autism to read. Lessons focus on teaching decoding skills, word meaning and comprehension, while integrating phonics instruction throughout the sessions. This series focuses on building confidence in reading, and supplemental Take-Home Workbooks will help families instill these important values in their child. Additional books, materials and strategies will be used in order to optimize, reinforce, and maintain the student's interest in reading.
Sessions and Cost
Tutoring sessions will be conducted and supervised by trained Emory Autism Center staff members. One hour sessions will be scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at a convenient time for both the client and the Reading Tutor. Those interested in accessing the Academic Clinic can obtain detailed cost information by calling the Emory Autism Center and requesting the information from the Monarch Program Academic Clinic. Students may attend either one or two hour-long sessions per week, though a twice-weekly session is optimum. Families will be provided with an assessment of their child's reading ability, on-going progress notes, as well as homework assignments, and information regarding other strategies that can complement the tutoring sessions.
Learning to read is one of life's greatest advantages, but is often quite a challenge for students with Autism. Reading can increase confidence and provide a sense of accomplishment for any child. We welcome the chance to assist your child in these areas. Click for Academic Clinic Flyer
