Discrete trial teaching (DTT) is a research-based, ABA method used to improve the behaviors of individuals with autism and other special needs. The goal of this training is for you to learn how to effectively use DTT to teach clients new skills, such as appropriate communication and social skills. This will help your client to use appropriate behaviors to get his or her needs met, instead of using problem behaviors, such as tantrums, to get what he or she wants.
Participants will learn about:
1) The discrete trial (e.g., SD, Response, and Reinforcement)
2) Other reinforcement concepts (e.g., schedules, token economy)
3) Motivational operations
4) Preference assessments and the inter-trial interval
