I’ve been spending about 20 minutes a day with a young man with developmental difficulties. He was brought to our school a few months ago when he somehow destroyed a classroom in a fit of rage. At the beginning of our tutoring sessions he showed me he had knowledge of the alphabet but blending was an alien concept to him. After much practice, he is now blending words up to five letters long and even beginning to attempt comprehension questions.
