Children who have difficulty expressing themselves or completing tasks often require assistance in the form of visual prompts. This visual prompt aids in keeping your child or student on task and behaving appropriately by providing them with simple, concrete reminders. First/Then cards are helpful for all students, but especially students who perform better when extremely frequent reinforcement is required.
This card can also be adapted for use in the home environment. It is compact enough to transport in your purse in order to assist in generalizing behavior across multiple settings. The First/Then card is especially helpful when performing activities of daily living in the community that are difficult for your child, such as going to the grocery store or running errands.
Simply provide the prompt, "First we will _______________ (task), and then you can ____________ (reward). Pair this verbal prompt with the pictures provided in the .pdf or incorporate your own! Additional pictures are also available in my shop.
