In addition to teaching language and other related skills, NET can be used to promote generalization of skills taught using discrete trial training (DTT). This workshop is designed to help prepare participants to teach and promote generalization of language and other related skills to students with autism and other developmental disabilities utilizing natural environment teaching (NET).
