2.To do so without the assistance of staff
3.To generalize the skill to the home environment and anywhere else they need to wash their hands
4. Objectives-
Students should be able to move backwards on the chain of the task of “washing hands” one step every three days. In two weeks students should be able to wash hands independently with just verbal prompting from staff. In one month students should be able to wash hands with only an initial direction to do so.
5. Materials and Aids-

6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

I will begin by explaining to the class that we are going to learn how to wash our hands. We need to wash our hands so that we don't get sick and other people don't either. If we are not able to wash our hands then other people will be sad, they won't want hugs or handshakes. Everyone needs to learn to wash their hands the right way. Washing hands is part of being a good friend.

B. Development-

1.Video will be used to model the target behavior. (video included)
2.This is the way we wash our hands Song
3.Coloring Pages for washing hands

C. Practice-

Practice will take place with Para support. We will adopt the backwards chaining method for this lesson.
Turn on water
use soap
Rinse hands turn off water
Dry hands
The Para will use hand over hand on all the parts of the chain and then allow the child to do the last step independently. As the children master the step they are on the Para will continue backwards on the chain until the child is able to wash their hands when asked to.

D. Independent Practice-

After the child appears to have mastery over washing their hands. Para support will include observation and verbal prompting or a reintroduction of physical prompting if any of the children lose part of the chain.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.OT will bring in different soaps and towels to help with sensory issues
2.Token charts will be used
3.Visual schedule depicting the chain of "washing hands"

F. Checking for understanding-

After each day we will review what we learned and discussed throughout the day.

G. Closure-

Students will receive tokens for attending instruction, attempting the different parts of each instructional chain.
7. Evaluation-
Evaluation: The whole class should show mastery of this skill within two weeks, within another two weeks the classroom should be able to complete the task with only the initial verbal demand being given by staff.
