ASD Reading is based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. Marion Blank, a world-renowned literacy and language expert who developed and served as Co-Director of the Columbia University Developmental Neuropsychiatry Program for Autism and Related Disorders.

Dr. Blank is a brilliant developmental psychologist. She understands child development, particularly the development of language and reading abilities in children. Her reading program is unique.
Dr. Blank's program had a tremendous impact on our daughter, Julia's, language. Julia is autistic and the program readily engages her. It's amazing how a system dealing with the complexities of language can be so simple for children to follow!
