Ms. Rodriguez sits across from Jake, making sure he is looking at her and paying attention. She says, "do this" as she touches her own nose. If Jake imitates the action by touching his own nose, Ms. Rodriguez will praise him ("Good job, Jake!") and give him a reward such as a raisin, which he loves. If Jake does not touch his nose, Ms. Rodriguez will "prompt" him to touch his nose by taking his hand and helping him touch his nose. Ms. Rodriguez may repeat this sequence for a total of 10 times in a row each day, until Jake can touch his nose consistently when asked to "do this."
