This blog will focus on ADLs and provide strategies to help a child sequence and execute personal hygiene tasks. These activities are needed to participate independently in home, school, community, and work environments. IADL skills include meal preparation, community mobility, health maintenance, home management clothing care, cleaningshopping, and care of others and pets.
A highly useful strategy to instruct children in the sequential performance of such tasks includes breaking down the task into smaller steps. While some children can observe others and readily reproduce the multi-stepped actions required to complete an ADL task, other children benefit from explicit instruction of each discrete step in the process.
Methods of Teaching ADLs: Backward Chaining involves the adult performing all the steps except the last step of the daily living task.
The child is expected to perform the last step of the daily living sequence. This continues with the adult performing fewer steps, and the child completing additional steps, until each step is completed independently.
Backward chaining would be an appropriate approach to utilize when the child requires immediate feedback. This method is helpful for children with a low frustration tolerance or poor self-esteem, as it provides immediate success.
Forward Chaining involves the child completing a daily living task in the traditional pattern, executing the first step, then second step, and so on, until the sequence is completed. Forward chaining is beneficial for children who have difficulty generalizing activities.
The adult is able to provide varying amounts of prompts and cues both before and throughout the task. Visual Supports to Promote ADL Success An environmental or task cue that can be utilized in sequencing personal hygiene skills is the use of visual pictures.
Visual sequencing images allow for increased independence and success with daily living skills.
These visual supports are especially useful when an adult is not present to support the learning process. The child can use the visual sequence images to help recall the steps of the sequence.
Once Self-Care routines and patterns have been developed, it is important to maintain these skills by utilizing the supports that promote continued success.

Like Baroque artists, Romantic artists hoped to inspire an emotional response in those who viewed their art; but instead of seeking to inspire faith as their predecesors had, most sought to evoke a nostalgic yearning for rural, pastoral life, the stirrings of life’s mysteries, and a sense of the power and grandeur of nature.
