we've used a first then board. first being the behavior we want, then a toy or preferred activity... it works.

we tried a sticker board, so many stickers means going to the zoo or a toy. it didn't work out, at all.

(evidently, my stickers were not perfectly lined up and ds ripped it apart trying to fix it)

I use one with my son. It has different activities like clean up your mess, stay in bed, brush your teeth, stuff like that. Then velcro stars for if he does the activity. Most of the time it works well. I orddered it from Amazon.

I've never heard of it but just googled it.

Sounds like a good idea to try.

Here are two pics of it I found:

Sounds like a good idea. We use an if...then chart for potty time. It works pretty good cause she gets to pick the end (fun) activity. I know in school she does something like that using pennies. Once she has collected so many pennies then she gets a prize (fav activity).

1 mom liked this

This is something my son's ABA team uses with him.  He started at just 19 months but now at almost 3 he has opinions on his lessons.  And with only using rewards like tickles or being tossed in the air he was perfectly happy to NOT do his lessons and wait out his therapists until they'd just move onto the next lesson.  So they brought in a token board and now he knows he gets a velcro PEC every time he does his lesson and after 10 he's done and can go take a break or w/e.  They don't go the whole 9 yards w/ the "picture of what I'm working for" b/c they want him to choose and use his words to tell them after he's finished.  Works like a charm:)

Yes it's a reward chart for good behavior.It's visual so they know what they are working for.

Ok, that's what I thought. His at home therapists tried it but it never seemed to have much success at home like it would at school. What worked better was routine and a schedule in pics (when he was younger, doesn't need it now) we would schedule in breaks for him too. Not every moment of his day but we had a big chart with hat our day would look like, what therapies he had or church stuff. Ashton likes knowing what's going on.
