Discrete Trial Training (DTT)
Discrete trial training consists of an adult using adult-directed, massed trial instruction, reinforcers, and clear contingencies and repetition to teach a new skill or behavior.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about discrete trial training (DTT).
- Applying DTT in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The DTT module will take approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for DTT||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of DTT||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for DTT||20 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using DTT||45 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring DTT||20 minutes|
|Applying DTT||10 minutes|
