Abstract
Children with autism have a disturbance in getting information with characteristics easily to be bored and visual learners so that it affects their reading difficulties. So that the right method is needed to improve their reading skills. The purpose of this research is to examine the influence of the Glenn Doman method on early reading ability in children with autism. The Glenn Doman method introduces children to a word consisting of two syllables first and then raised on words that have more than two syllables with visual media assistance that can attract children’s interest. Participants in this research were 7 autistic children in low-grade elementary whose ages ranged from 8 to 9 years. This research uses a quantitative approach with a pre-experimental One-Group Pretest and Posttest design. Data were collected using written and oral tests of initial reading ability given to subjects before and after interventions. Data were analyzed using non-parametric statistics with Wilcoxon match-pair test. The result shows that the Glenn Doman method significantly improves early reading ability in autistic children.
