I work as a TA with a child who has complex needs. I have worked with him

from 2 and a half to three and then from mid reception to now. (At three he

was diagnosed with leukaemia. ) Now in year one he never stops surprising me.

Today was doing a spot of maths and decided to look at numbers and asking

with a choice of two wheres the 2 etc. He showed me correctly on all numbers

up to 10. Then when i picked up a 2 he showed me 2 fingers and said two. The same with three and four.

Then later we looked at sounds out of the 17 I showed him he recognised and said 16.
I was stunned and so proud. I didn't think he recognised any as he has not

given any indications that he did.

I am so proud of him and how much he achieves despite the hundreds of trips to hospital, the chemo etc. This is from a child who was described by the assessment unit as unteachable.
Will name change after this but wanted to share with people who know how big this is.
