Using visual supports for autistic clients an be helpful for everyone.
Directions: Let client know that they will earn 3 stars/hearts before they get to engage in a task of their choosing. As the client stays on task, therapist/teacher can place a star/heart on the task completion tool.
OPTIONS: You can also use a plastic container with a small opening on the top of the lid to allow for the laminated hearts, stars, or fuzz balls to be pushed thru for each one earned there can be a minute of fun that is their choice.
Another motivator can be to copy a picture of interest and then cut it into puzzle style pieces(you can take a picture of interest and laminate it by using clear contact paper, or cut up a favorite cereal box cover) and they can earn a piece of the picture until all the pieces of the picture are assembled signaling that the client is now ready to do an activity of their choice as a reward for staying on their work tasks.
We have included several pictures to help give you ideas that help you devise what is needed for your client.
