Any teacher should consider literacy for children with ASD as a mean to promote a real inclusion, competence, indipendence. Absence of verbal language is not prohibitive itself. We present the story of a primary school age girl. The multidisciplinary team has evaluated functioning by tools as PEP-R, VCAA (to the aim to choose the best AAC system). Psycho educative approaches are desumed from Teacch and ABA. In the beginning she used 140 signs (LIS) and a few words. She showed great interest for literacy. Our method of teaching started with the facilitation of fonological competence (fusion of sounds) by using perceptive-motor activities, visual and auditory activities, also using App on tablet. At the same time, we used pictures associated with words to the aim to train her ability to break the word to the letters and then to compose the same word by manipulating the letter with a auditory feedback. The idea is to integrate different channels, visual, perceptive, motor, auditory to promote literacy and to acquire the skill to use this great mean of learning and communication.
