Repetition in Autism learning

 What I am finding teaching children with Autism is that repetition is key small steps and all that. So two weeks ago I was tearing my hair out because what  ever I did I just couldn't get them to understand it. I felt terrible because I wanted them to progress and I wanted to know that i  was making a difference in their world and in their learning.
'
So first time We started with  Peas went Pop'  and was well and  the child responded at the appropriate time s by saying 'POP' We then moved on to "five Fat sausages sizzling in a pan' and this is where it all went pear shaped as the child said 'POP' at the appropriate times instead of 'Bang' After this I decided to stick to one rhyme "Five Fat Sausages'



I followed 'Five fat Sauages' by doing a phonics sessions just a quick one from Big Cat Phonics and I am finding two weeks on that the child is making huge progress. So by sticking to one ryhme and moving 'Big Cat ' on one session at a time progress is made.
