Vocabulary terms, chapter highlights, chapter review questions, chapter review answers, and a glossary, combine to make "Quality Literacy Instruction For Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders" an extraordinarily useful instructional guide and manual for educators and is a core addition to professional and academic library reference collections.
