I love some of the things my students come up with.

One of my students, who has autism, often echos things he has already heard (echolalia). He also loves to sing.

I was leading a rousing rendition of “Old McDonald Had a Farm” when he loudly re-worded the chorus with something he’s apparently heard before.

Old McDonald had a farm

Go on.

Sing it.

I know you wanna!

Guess how I’m teaching The Flash his vowels now? 😉
