Hello. My name is...

It's a little rough, but he wrote his name all by himself!!

This is really huge because many kids with autism struggle with fine motor skills. Jakson has been having trouble writing his letters for awhile-it has been very frustrating for him and he's used the term "can't" a lot. We're hoping that this little breakthrough is the beginning of a new- found confidence.

Hooray! Congratulations, Jakson! It seems like he's been so enamored with the ABC's so long - I bet it's really satisfying for him to finally be able to write his name. So sweet! I love how you caught him just peeking under his paper.

Way to go Jackson! Beth, you may consider using the program "Hand Writing without Tears." The Autism program at my school site uses it with the preschoolers and kindergarteners and it works great!
