How to use a First-Then visual
For children who are visual thinkers, a first-then visual can help manage expectations when working on less-preferred activities.
Write or draw the activity the child needs to do in the First box. Then write or draw a preferred activity in the Then box.
You can print and laminate one to re-use, or just draw your own. Seeing what comes next can be very helpful in building work stamina and decreasing refusals.
