MODULE: Discrete Trial Training (DTT)
[ View PDF ] Step-By-Step Instructions for Discrete Trial Training
Once the learner has made progress and mastered a set of skills with discrete trial teaching, the educational team may choose to meet and report on the learner’s progress. At this point it is important to identify additional skills that may benefit from discrete trial training.
It is important to promote generalization of skills mastered with DTT. Once the skills are maintained and utilized the learner should generalize these skills to other settings. Utilizing the skills in natural environments is the ultimate goal of DTT. So, it will be important to note examples of generalization to other settings. For example, it may be important to gather information from the learner’s family regarding the generalization of the skill in the home environment.
