Discrete Trial Training (DTT) has been demonstrated to be an effective method of treatment for children with autism and is also one of the most frequently implemented procedures used in an ABA program (smith, 2001; Stahmer, Ingersoll, & Carter, 2003).  DTT can be used to teach almost any skill set including language, social, vocational, cognitive, and imitation.  The goal of DTT is to establish basic discriminations that can be generalized and expanded upon using other teaching procedures such as natural environment teaching (NET) (Tarbox & Najdowski 2008).  This workshop is designed to help prepare participants to utilize DTT in home and school settings to teach beginning tact, imitation, echoic, listener, match-to-sample, and intraverbal skills.  It is recommended that a VB-MAPP guide and protocol be brought to the workshop.

After completing this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Utilize VB-MAPP profiles to select individualized, developmentally appropriate discrete trial targets.
  • Discuss research-based teaching procedures during DTT.
  • Demonstrate effective prompting procedures during DTT.
  • Discuss a variety of efficient and effective date collection methods for DTT.
