This study evaluated the effectiveness of a clustered forward chaining (CFC) procedure to teach a 23-year-old male with autism to follow written recipes. CFC incorporates elements of forward chaining (FC) and total task chaining (TTC) by teaching a small number of steps (i.e., units) using TTC, introducing new units sequentially (akin to FC), and prompting through untrained steps. Results indicated that CFC was effective for teaching the participant to follow written recipes. Results maintained with therapist support for 3-5 weeks for all recipes, and maintained when therapist support was removed.
