OpenMind Alliance, in Ontario, is focused on improving literacy skills for children and adults with autism. Sue Co became frustrated at her son’s school for their lack of faith in the possiblities of teaching a child with autism to read. She discovered through trial and error that her son was an auditory learner and began teaching him to read by sounding out letters and words aloud. To give more people with autism the same advantages, Co added an education degree to her accomplishments and convinced her sister to help her run the business end of a literacy center. Co says, “Once they learn to read, they can read to learn.”
