When Joshua was hardly 10 months old, his father found out that he could remember the alphabets on the keyboard. With the keyboard being the child’s interest, his father said that he started telling him what the letters on the keyboard were and he realized that he could understand and remember them all.
So if he asked him to point to a letter, he correctly pointed at it. The next step was to move towards colors. He made sure that he memorized every color on the pallet.

He made him remember all the colors. Now he made it sure that he pointed at the correct color when asked by the name of the color.
Soon he was shifted to the English alphabet. He also made sure that he remembered the alphabets by their names and shapes.
