Meeting Sensory Needs For Kids with Autism/Asperger's

My little guys have a HUGE range of abilities this year. Looks like I'll be teaching the alphabet and numbers to one group, and long vowels and double-digit addition/subtraction to another group.

Eyes, eyes, everywhere
So, if you remember my post from the other day about our reading superpowers, one of the things we are really focusing in on is pointing under our words.
