A First/Then card or board shows two sequential activities identifying them in order of completion as “First” and “Then.” It sets up clear expectations for the student by providing visual structure. It can function as a behavioral contract for those specific activities or as a visual reminder to the student. Showing a non-preferred task followed by a rewarding activity that immediately follows will make the task more manageable.
How can I get my student to do work in a subject that he dislikes? Every time he sees math on his schedule, he tantrums and rips up the paper.
