Setting the Table - NLD Style

My son is 11 and has lots of trouble with visual memory and visual perception. I have assigned him the task of helping me set the table for dinner, and he almost always had trouble remembering where the knives, forks and spoon go. One day he set the place settings perfectly, and he proudly pointed out that the utensils go in alphabetical order. Huh? Yes - going from left to right, it's fork, knife, spoon.
