How To Use ABA/Discrete Trials To Teach Skills


This presentation will discuss Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and Discrete Trial (DTF) in teaching children across the Autism Spectrum. Discrete Trial may be used to teach: 1.) social/play skills (i.e. imitative play, turn-taking and imitating peers), 2.) receptive and expressive language, 3.) self-help skills (i.e. toileting, dressing and undressing and oral hygiene) and 4.) academics (i.e. matching identical items, identifying shapes, colors, letters and numbers). DTF may be customized to meet the needs of each child. DTF is highly structured and builds upon a child’s strengths. DTF allows those teaching children with autism to customize the program for each child, and also allows for program modification when necessary.

The second session will have participants practice using Discrete Trial to teach important skills.
