Discrete Trial Training (DTT)



DTT is an ABA technique used at MABAC and in our home-based or school-based services when a child needs practice and repetition of certain skills. DTT involves breaking a skill into parts, teaching each part to mastery, providing prompting and fading as necessary, and using reinforcement procedures. DTT is a great way to help a child practice specific skills needed to succeed in a more natural setting. For example, if the child is having trouble maintaining appropriate eye contact, he/she will have trouble learning from teachers or peers. DTT is used as a way to practice prerequisite skills, so these skills can be generalized to a more natural environment. Services at MABAC, in the home, and at the school allow for both the teaching of new skills as well as the practice of these skills in natural play settings.
