I recently ran across a brilliant video from Carla Butorac with BehaviorCommunicates.com that teaches two simple visual strategies that help remind us as parents and teachers to cut the verbal and go visual with our children.
If you find yourself telling a child to do something over and over and over (my son) and they don’t comply, you need to go visual and SHOW them!
This video illustrates two simple examples of visuals you can use in the classroom or at home. The first is called FIRST and THEN; the second visual is called a token board.
Take a look at the video to see what this looks like!
I can’t wait to employ these ASAP to help Justin stay on track, especially since I homeschool. Give them a try and let me know how it goes by commenting below or posting to the SOA Facebook page!
