Each chapter is devoted to increasing generalization through a specific intervention: Pivotal Response Training, Discrete Trial Instruction, Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), social stories, and computer-assisted interventions.
The effects of discrete trial instruction and mand training for teaching children with autism to make requests for items.
Accordingly, staff training research has focused on several ABA skills such as conducting a functional analysis (Moore, Edwards, SterlingTurner, Riley, DuBand, & McGeorge, 2002), performing preference assessment (Lavie & Sturmey, 2002), carrying-out discrete trial instruction (Gilligan, Luiselli, & Pace, 2006; LeBlanc, Ricciardi, & Luiselli, 2005; Sarokoff & Sturmey, 2004), and implementing behavior support plans (Codding, Feinberg, Dunn, & Pace, 2005).
Programs based in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) methodology such as discrete trial instruction (DTI) and applied verbal behavior (AVB) remain popular interventions for children diagnosed with ASD.
Abstract We evaluated an abbreviated performance feedback intervention as a training strategy to improve discrete trial instruction of children with autism by three paraprofessional staff (assistant teachers) at a specialized day school.
Clinicians can utilize a combination of Discrete Trial Instruction (DTT), naturalistic strategies, and rate-building procedures to maximize the acquisition, generalization, and availability of skills.
Many of these ABA programs have utilized an impressive array of ABA technology, while some programs have relied heavily on the use of discrete trial instruction.
It is important to emphasize that in EIBI discrete trial instruction represents a system of implementation and must be evaluated in relation to a detailed curriculum that gradually moves towards higher levels of complexity and sophistication.
