So excited today. Josh, my 9 year old son who has autism, has learned his alphabet so we are now working on sounds. I wanted to create something with real words for him as we are starting with the basics. Hat, cat, sat etc.
It took a while, over 6 hours, but I managed to design a wooden block set. These blocks are placed on a dowel so that when he turns one of the consonants he gets a completely new word.
He and his teachers are loving it. Since posting about it on facebook, we have found more parents and grandparents loving them too. They were a natural fit to our wooden toy store and the beginning of our literary activities in our made to order shop.
If you think your child can benefit from these as well, you can purchase your set here:
