Backward chaining is a procedure used to teach a chain of steps (e.g., washing dishes, making a sandwich). The clinician completes all the steps except for the last step in the chain. The clinician teaches the client the last step, this continues in this direction until all steps are complete. The clinician is currently using backward chaining to teach a client how to wash dishes. The clinician is utilizing this procedure to help increase the client’s tolerance of soapy dishwater. There are 8 steps to washing dishes and at this time the clinician completes all but the 8th step to help increase tolerance of soapy water.
