With the slew of superhero movies hitting the box office records this year, I expect to see children ditching their wordy storybooks for graphic novels and helpless parents fretting over their children’s literacy downward spiral.

I remember when my wife and I found out our son was autistic. We went through what most parents who discover this disorder go through…guilt (that somehow it was our fault), fear (that he would not be able to cope) and well…mostly just worry. We managed to get help from EIPIC (Early Intervention Program for Infants and Children), and thankfully he is much better today.
My wife works from home, which is another big bonus. She practices reading with our son, while I just read him bedtime stories. She did quite a bit of research on helping our son adapt and cope, especially with reading. I’ll be sharing five useful tips you can put into practice at home.
