The aim of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a most to least prompting procedure in the learning of practical leisure skills for adults with autism. The selected activity was making a basket form from clay and was carried out with two adults in the clay studio at a private center for special education for individuals with autism. A multiple probe design was used and the dependent variable was the skill to make a basket from clay. The independent variable was to teach the skill with the most to least prompting procedure. The research results showed that the method was effective not only in teaching to make a basket from clay, but also in maintaining the learned skill.
