“Check your brain back in.”
“Think with your eyes.”

Strategies to try at home

Take a picture of what the job looks like when it’s DONE so your child can 
use it as a reference.

Take a picture of what it looks like when they are showing the expected 
behavior. Use this as a visual cue.

Show your child what is expected FIRST, followed by what they will do 
THEN.
