Teaching Dressing Skills to a Blind Multihandicapped Six Year Old.
Opdahl, Chris A.; Whitehead, Jayme S.
A backward chaining procedure was used to train a 6-year-old blind, nonverbal, severely mentally retarded boy to dress himself. Trainers performed three types of procedures: no help, verbal instructions, and physical guidance and instructions. Results indicated that the procedure was successful in teaching the skills necessary for dressing, that generalization of skills occurred, and that followup data showed maintenance of dressing skills.
