I would suggest one of the dolls that you practice tying, buttoning, zipping. There use to be a Ernie doll available.

well dont worry to much i had the same problem with my 8 year old as i tried and tried and for some reason just dint grasp it.
So i gave up and after a while i was like hold on maybe if i let some one else teach him and i asked my brother inlaw to teach him it took him 20 mins to teach him and i was in shock that he did so.
Now my son ties his own shoes and i am a happy mom hihi

so my advise is try and see if some one else can help em learn it and you would be surprised with the result.
