If you are finding it difficult to encourage your child to do something or complete an activity, use a motivator.
First of all – he/she must choose a reward from their choice board e.g. bubbles, play with water, jump on the trampoline etc.
Use the motivator card on his/her ‘Now and Next’ card to show him/her that he/she needs to complete a task/activity first and then/next he/she can have the motivator.
Try and keep the task/activity short and simple. If he/she is still refusing to complete the task use ‘hand on hand support’ to complete the task together and give him/her the reward at the end of it. Over time, your child will understand that the quicker he/she completes a task the quicker he/she will achieve the reward.
Who doesn’t like a reward at the end of completing a difficult task?
