Line Up Visual Card

Visual to reinforce or replace the verbal direction to line up.

When to use: 

  • Use to replace or reinforce verbal directions. 
  • Use to quickly and quietly redirect a student. 


  • Make sure that the student is able to ‘line up’ before using this visual. A student must be taught how to line up before a visual will help them remember to line up. 

How to use: 

  1. Use the cue card to visually reinforce verbal directions, or as nonverbal reminders. 
  2. Be sure the student can see the cue card. 


  • Use a photograph of the student lining up instead of a line drawing to increase student ownership and understanding of the desired behavior. 
  • Keep several cue cards on a key ring or lanyard for easy access to commonly used directions during student interactions throughout the day. 
  • See Behavior Cue Cards for an example.
