Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

Purpose DTT is a highly structured teaching method. It breaks down skills into small, manageable tasks. It’s often used for teaching basic skills such as language, social, and self-help skills.

Techniques The therapist presents a specific instruction or cue, the individual responds and then receives reinforcement if the response is correct. Repetition and positive reinforcement are key elements.
