  • Just start associating the letters with objects. Make each day a certain letter. Draw it out and then say things in the home that start with that letter. Then next day, go to the next letter in the alphabet.

  • My son has autism. When he was little, I tried everything to teach him his letters. He knew the letters and the names, but he just couldn't seem to get the letter sounds. I used LeapFrog's "The Letter Factory" video and it was like magic. I know they make a video for numbers now too.

  • We go outside with sidewalk chalk and I draw a letter and then he draws pictures of words that begin with that letter.
