Here is a simple, no-frills, no-distractions "First/Then Board." Perfect for students with autism, intellectual disability, low motivation, or behavioral challenges. The First/Then board visually presents what the student needs to do now (first) and what he will do next (then). Great for teachers, therapists, or parents. Use with picture icons for young or non-verbal children, or with written text for readers.
The concept is to remind them that they will get their task done first, then receive a more-motivating activity, or reward. We use this board before a problem happens, or when a student refuses to complete a task. This simple tool can be one of the more useful and effective interventions to implement with students who tend to resist doing their work, or who need reminders to finish a task. Good luck!
