COUNTDOWN CHARTS:
Handy to use! Designed to break down the work-to-reward ratio to motivate participation in your learning activities!

A colorful countdown reward chart in a 5-4-3-2-1 style!

ALSO OPTION FOR A LONGER COUNTDOWN: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1! Plus two blank cards you can write and/or draw "goal rewards" on as an option!

Just print and laminate, then cut out the number cards and attach with velcro. OR this could also be used (after laminating) with a dry erase type marker to cross of the numbers on the chart.

The student (or instructor) can pull off the cards one at a time as they work through tasks towards the main goal/reward. Students can be more motivated to work through a task when they experience the progress of the 5-4-3-2-1 countdown to their final goal!

How this can be helpful: Some students may have difficulty staying on task (or completing a task), as it may seem to them that the task is taking too long and/or does not seem to have an end. Students on the Autism Spectrum may particularly have difficulty with the abstract concepts daily schedules, transitions of tasks, and time on task can present. This countdown to finish/reward part provides a visual strategy in which the student can see the task going away and thus helping the student to understand that the task will end when the cards are all removed. OPTION: Write &/or draw a goal on the optional goal cards if needed for extra motivation.
