I have never taught an autistic person, but I have taught 5 to read. Three were boys. The first had a hard time. I have used Writing Road to Reading, which I believe is the best. It is a rather cheap, but intensive program. The other program I have used is Rod and Staff. It is very cheap. I also supplemented with Explode the Code at the same time. It is also cheap. These both worked well. I have learned one very important thing though while teaching the one that had a hard time. PATIENCE IS INVALUABLE!!! A step by step incremental approach with him like the explode the code and rod and staff would probably have been better than the route I chose. I started the Writing Road to Reading, which is VERY good, but it was too intensive on him at the time and I gave up on it too easy and switched back and forth between a couple of other programs. Since then, I have gone back to WWR, and it has helped with the spelling. He reads fine now, but I just changed my approach with the two younger ones and stayed with the one curriculum that was a step by step. I seems to have worked out fine. Good Luck!
