ASD and alphabet

What is the best way to approach the alphabet for ASD preschool age children?

As a Reading Specialist I always teach letter sounds first.

My son's ABA therapists are doing the alphabet with him (with puzzles, singing) and are saying phrases like A for apple, B for ball, etc.

I'm a little concerned because I once worked with a teacher who had a student diagnosed with ASD who would read words like this (example: car): C for cat, A for apple, R for rabbit. Needless to say, it took a long time to undue it.

We used Zoo-phonics which is multi-sensory and letter sounds are taught with visual, auditory and kinesthetic cues.
