    Hi,

    Does anyone know of any low-level books (levels B-E) that contain subject matter about high interest topics for kids with autism? I'm thinking things specifically like computers, ipads, cars, trains, refrigerators, air conditioners, furnaces, airplanes, etc. I have a beginner student who is very unmotivated to read, although he has the capability, but is very motivated by these specific topics.

    Thanks!

    I've used the printable books from Reading A - Z. The pictures are very nice on these books, but you're right that it's pretty difficult to find these types of books. Maybe I'll have to work on making some.
