Discrete Trial Training

Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

If you're not already using discrete trial, join us to learn a great way to teach new skills. Discrete trial training is based on the principle of breaking down behavior into separate (discrete) steps that have a clear beginning, middle, and end. DTT consists of adult-directed, massed trial instruction, reinforcers, and clear contingencies and repetition to teach a new skill or behavior.

Learning outcomes include:

  • Choose behavior or skill that can be addressed with DTT
  • Identify steps of DTT
  • How to implement DTT in the classroom
  • Data collection techniques
