Using coloured grapheme tiles to teach phonics?

'What do you think about using colours to help the children know which sounds graphemes map to?'

As this is a question I am often asked I have created a video below.

While there are many outstanding elements of OG programs, this is not one I would use, especially not with my neurodivergent learners.
There is too much 'teaching' needed. 

While I understand the way I view teaching and learning may differ from 'the norm', I see my neurodivergence as a strength when teaching students who may also learn differently. I see things others may not pay attention to, or think 'matters' - I dig deep. It's how my brain works! I like patterns, to be able to figure things out with as little 'teaching' as possible, and for it to 'make sense without memorisation. I understand not everyone will agree with me, and that my opinions may upset people - that is not my intention.
