Reading between the lines : A study on teaching reading comprehension to pupils with autism spectrum disorders in a separate group (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate how two teachers support reading comprehension in the subjects Swedish and Social science in primary school in a specialized teaching group for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The study included eight classroom observations, four in Swedish and four in Social science. The study took place in a specialised teaching group which was divided into two different groups based on age and skill level. In one group there were three students aged 7-10 years and in the other group there were three students aged 10-13 years. Four observations in each group were performed.

The study also included two interviews with the teachers to follow up on their views on instruction of reading comprehension for students with ASD.

During the observations, both teachers gave much praise and acknowledgment to the students and they used photographs, films and other concrete materials in their teaching. Both teachers made adjustments for the students. They provided the students with texts with adjusted layouts, the students were offered to listen to the texts, and in writing tasks the teacher acted as a secretary to aid the students in handwriting. None of the teachers used Lena Franzén's materials where the students are asked to read a text and then answer detailed questions as well as questions based on inference about the text. One of the teachers used a similar working process with texts as the one used in Lena Franzéns material. None of the teachers used all the four strategies of reciprocal teaching during the observations: predict content, identify new words in the text, ask your own questions to the text, sort out and summarize the text. But both teachers occasionally used some of the elements from both reciprocal teaching and from Lena Franzén's material.
