    I've been working with a child with autism for about a year and a half now. He's in Kindergarten this year, but I worked with him a few times a week in his Pre-K SpEd class last year to help prepare him for this year. We've really been working on learning the names of the alphabet, as well as the sounds. Unfortunately, we've made very little progress. However, one of the main sounds we've been working on is the "k" sound. (His name starts with K.) On Friday, he came into my room, grabbed my hand and pulled my over to the carpet. (It has all of the ABC's on it.) He put my hand on the letter K and said "K says (k sound)." I almost cried. I can finally see that I'm getting somewhere with this child and I have never been so proud. This is the reason that I'm teaching special ed. I hope everyone else has had moments like these because they really reassured me that I'm in the right career. :)
