The independent variable of the study is least prompting instruction. Everday two instruction sessions are conducted. In each probe session, three trials were conducted with the task analysis. The instruction of shoe wearing skill consisted of all steps in the task analysis. In each training session, three trials are conducted with the task analysis. Inter trials interval is 3ec, and inter responses interval is 5ec. The hierarchy of controlling stimuli are determined as partial physical prompt, modelling + verbal prompt and gestural prompt. The criterion for passing to a lower controlling stimulus is identified as %100 in three successive trials. The data of effectiveness, the reliability between observers and reliability of application will be gathered, recorded and analysed.
