Visual TimetablesThese are helpful for anxious children, those with low motivation, those with autism, sensory processing difficulties, speech communication and language difficulties and those with sequencing difficulties.
Now and Next Board and CardsSome children who struggle to concentrate or remain motivated may benefit from ‘Now and Next’ Cards. This is a particularly good way of introducing rewards for task completion. If your child struggles with this, make the ‘target task’ very short, followed swiftly by the reward activity. The reward activity might be a ‘special interest’ such as playing with trains or lego. Gradually, the child will trust the reward process and you can extend the target task gradually.
