Learning to read

Luke Jackson wrote a book when he was thirteen about his experiences and observations as a boy with Asperger’s.

Early on in his schooling he had a lot of extra help with learning to read but was getting nowhere – or so it seemed.

When he was seven an educational psychologist assessed him but could not see any sign that he could read anything.     Then the next day he picked up a copy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that his teacher had been using in class and started to read it fluently.
