Chaining is a technique that has been widely used across various disciplines to teach individuals diagnosed with developmental disabilities to complete complex behaviors. Given the amount of research conducted on these procedures and how commonly they are used in applied settings, a systematic literature review was conducted to provide a summary of current research, best practice guidelines, and directions for future research. Studies that (a) discussed the types of chaining and procedural variations, (b) compared chaining procedures, and (c) provided guidelines for future implementation were included in this literature review. These articles were then reviewed to provide a summary of current chaining techniques and procedural variations, comparative effectiveness of chaining procedures, and best practice recommendations for clinicians.
