How to help seven year old with high functioning autism with reading?

My daughter is seven years old. She has high functioning autism. At school, she receives special education services. I work closely with her teachers. I was just wondering what else is out there to help with reading? Programs? Books? Anything?

Thank you!

  • What difficulty specifically is she having? Sounding out words, comprehension, etc?

  • She is able to sound out words. She has a hard time with blending. Her speech/language delay makes it challenging.
