52. #Autism – How did this kid learn to read so early?

I remember spelling signs out as they sounds we walked along on the daily walks. I asked him to repeat the words.

Hubby thinks that the letters on the page became characters “with a life of their own. My 9 year old can read from the word go but my 5 year old is having challenges in this area. Both Autistic. Both very different. It’s all to hard for the 5 year old.

The 5 yr old finds It difficult to concentrate as there is too many variables to distract attention away from putting two or three letters together (segmentation and phonics). What is the key to undo this lock???

I put the visual representation of awards/certificates on the wall to show these visual learners they can do it
