Reading is not on top of our teaching list yet, because we want to prioritise helping Nathan lengthen his interactive attention span, gain social confidence around people, verbalise deep thoughts and carry out meaningful conversations.
But it’s interesting how Nathan is wanting to learn phonics on his own. He picked a word and he decided that he wanted to change the first letter and listen to the different words it turns into. Moments like this give me confidence knowing that Nathan, in his own time, will choose to learn and excel in whatever he decides he wants to do in life!
Praise God for the gift of peace and confidence in His guidance over Nathan!
