Forward chaining: a 'one step at a time' method

Forward chaining is a way of teaching one step at a time in order, starting with the first step and working towards the last step. For example, when putting on a t-shirt.

Step 1: your child would lay the t-shirt down
Step 2. You would pick up the t-shirt and place it over your child’s head
Step 3. You hold out the first sleeve and put their arm through the sleeve opening
Step 4. You do the same with the other arm and the second opening
Step 5. You pull down the t-shirt

Next time you practice the task with your child, he or she would complete steps 1 and 2, gradually
adding more steps until your child can independently complete the task.
