- Show the student the first/then card, point to the two symbols, and say “First (Activity 1), then (Activity 2)”. If the student resists or gets off task, show them the card again and repeat this phrase.
- When the first activity is done, show the student the first/then card again and say “(Activity 1) finished!” while pointing at the first visual on the card. Then point to the second activity and say “Now, (Activity 2).”
- Begin Activity 2 immediately.
