To help those of you who are wondering about your child’s alphabet skills, I will walk you through the process of creating alphabet books for your child to take home.
Alphabet books should always be made by the child’s own child or caregiver, not bought or given to them. We are going to use the alphabet of our children, and make them do things with them. This will make the work of creating it easier because you’ll have the child’s own alphabet book already in your possession and it will be more of a collaborative effort to create the book. It’s important that you choose the same alphabet for your child for consistency.
The idea of a kid creating their own alphabet book is amazing, but what to do about it when they aren’t old enough to pick it up themselves. This is one of the biggest differences between children and adults. Children are constantly creating, creating, creating. What they don’t know isn’t going to be useful to them.
As a parent, I often hear the question “how do I teach my child to spell?” And the answer is often “just tell them to spell by heart.” I mean really, what does it mean to be a child, I ask? A child is a human being. They are not programmed to be able to do certain things, but the same rules apply. If I tell my child to “spell this way, you can do it this way.
This is called the “gut instinct.” It’s the “instinct” we have that tells us that something is wrong, and wants it to be fixed. There have been many studies done on the subject of this. People with neurological disorders, stroke victims, people with dementia, and people who have been exposed to some sort of trauma such as child abuse or sexual assault all have a tendency to have a higher incidence of spelling difficulties.
My son, who is 8, has been diagnosed with autism and is now receiving speech therapy. I’ve heard a few theories on what this means for a child with a disability. Some doctors believe that with therapy kids with autism can get better at talking and may be able to communicate with their parents better. Other doctors believe that it just means that he has a higher IQ.
A lot of kids with autism will be on the spectrum. They might have speech issues but are not able to hear and understand everything being said to them. They might have a low IQ but can pick up on things being said. They might have an IQ that is too high for some things but isn’t above average for everything. Whatever the reason, these kids with autism may not have any trouble with the alphabet books we’re showing you.
You can’t be too sure. Some kids with autism have very specific verbal and cognitive impairments that aren’t fully understood. Some kids with autism will be better at a certain task than others, but they might not be able to understand a letter the same, or they might pick up on a word but not the meaning. Sometimes kids with autism have a strong vocabulary; other kids with autism might be better at reading, but they might have some difficulty understanding written language.
This is where it gets tricky. What does it mean to be “better at” something? For example, a high-functioning autistic child might be better than a low-functioning autistic child at math, but it’s not as if they’re better at math. If you’re talking about a specific type of child, then they’re both good at the same thing.
The problem is that in the real world, autistic kids are often good at something but their classmates are not. This is especially true in the primary classroom. When a child with autism is in the primary classroom, theyre more likely to be distracted, anxious, or bored. This can lead to problems with social interaction and learning.
