    My son is high functioning autistic and struggling with Math and Reading comprehension. He is in 10th grade. I have gone trough many apps but they were pretty much useless. Any apps containing video of teachers writing on a board, similar to a class, is really not helping at all. If you know of any interactive video lessons with practice, please let me know. Thanks.
