Shoe Tying 1: Single Loop – Off Foot – Version 1: The Activity Trainer – Activity App – Shoe Tying 1 teaches a child, student, or special needs individual to tie a shoe.

Teach your child to tie shoes in a fraction of the time with this video modeling made practical app!

This app combines systematic teaching and video modeling into a practical teaching environment simple enough for parents and others not highly trained in these methods. This is an educational power tool that anyone can use!

This app takes the frustration out of teaching shoe tying for the parent and the child. The app breaks down shoe tying into individual video steps that the student can master one-by-one building confidence and cooperation. The app teaches both the skill and the associated language with the various steps of shoe tying. The teacher can easily control the presentations to the student while assisting and fading the assistance until the student is independent. The teacher can easily replay individual steps and sequences in video or image formats.

With the aid of the Activity App Shoe Tying 1, you teach the student to tie a shoe off their foot and on a table top where it is easier for you to help. The student learns both the basic skill and the associated language. Once the student has mastered the skill table top, then you transition the skill to tying the shoe on the foot. This transition is fairly simple since the student would already have the basic fine motor skill and associated language.

The Shoe Tying 1 app comes with an integrated help system including a Teaching Guide, Using App instructions, and a page on why and how Video Modeling works. The integrated help system is backed up by web based resources to make teaching and learning shoe tying a painless experience!

PARENTS AND TEACHERS OF TYPICAL CHILDREN: Teach your child at an earlier age, easier, and quicker than traditional methods. Give your child that sense of accomplishment and independence gained by learning shoe tying. You will have one less thing to do in your busy schedule!

TEACHERS AND PARENTS OF SPECIAL NEEDS INDIVIDUALS: Combine the power of video modeling and our Activity App to minimize your time and effort in teaching shoe tying. Overcome various issues associated with poor observational learners like representational and memory problems and confusion between model and facilitation. Also provide a consistent and non-threatening model that focuses on the most critical information while minimizing distracting information. Even students that have previously not learned shoe tying can in many cases learn this skill that will naturally be maintained daily for the rest of their lives. Since shoe tying is a moderately complex fine motor skill, success at shoe tying demonstrates that the student has the cognitive ability to learn many other daily living and vocational skills.
