First / Then Behavior Boards: Effective Positive Management System for Children with Autism
Do you have students with autism, ADHD, or ADD who need more help focusing and adhering to school rules? A First, Then board allows the student to choose a reward to follow a teacher selected goal. For example, if you want a student to complete their work, you would select the “Do your work” picture goal and place it on the board under “First.” The student selected incentive in placed under “Then” by either the student or the teacher. When the student has completed the goal, the reward is given immediately. These are useful in school for general education teachers, special education teacher, specialists, and therapists. Many parents also utilize them at home.
Included in this printable download are
★ First, Then Boards sized 5” * 3”
★ Choice Boards with 8 boxes for desired rewards
★ 29 Academically Focused goals for “First”
★ 29 Life Skills goals for “First”
★ 54 popular incentive choices for positive reinforcement
First, then boards can be used for students who need a little more motivation or for students who have behavior plans. I often include these in IEPs for students who have a behavior goal. Included are printable boards with premade popular goals and incentive pictures and blank boxes for you to add an original picture to. I recommend printing these in color, laminating and cutting out. Then attach Velcro to the cards, the dots, and the reward pictures.
I often use these often for students with autism in the general education classroom. The visual aids allow them to see the goal associated with a desired reward increasing the likelihood that the goal will be completed.
The choice boards are an important part of the First, Then boards. The student selects between 4-8 incentives that they are interested in working for. Out of these incentives the student then selects one to focus on for a reward. This picture card is placed on the First, Then board. The student is allowed to pick a different reward at the beginning of each new goal of the card.
If there is a goal or incentive that is NOT identified in this packet, please send me a message and I’d be happy to add it for you before or after you download.
