The effects of a reciprocal questioning intervention on the reading comprehension and social communication of students with autism spectrum disorder  

The proposed intervention incorporates a National Readng Panel (NRP) advocated strategy as well as research-based instructional supports responsive to the learning needs of students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Children with ASD will be taught a reciprocal questioning strategy in the context of a partner-reading activity with a general education peer. Single subject designs will be used to measure the impact of the intervention on participant comprehension of fiction and nonfiction texts as well as social communication. Project Status
