Abstract/Description: This study compared forward versus backward chaining in preschool children with a simple shoe-tying task, the task consisted of eight steps and it was performed by ten preschoolers from a Tallahassee preschool. The task which emitted fewer trials/errors to criterion was determined to be the superior chaining method. Results suggest that backwards chaining is the ideal chaining method for preschoolers when learning how to tie a shoe. Future research should be aimed at generalizing this procedure to a shoe they are wearing, and determine if the children show the same preference for this procedure on other self care tasks.
