Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is a method used in ABA therapy that helps children to acquire new skills. DTT breaks skills down into discrete steps, which build upon each other to help the child attain the skill. This helps a child to gain repeated exposure and practice, while ensuring that they achieve success.
The goal of a DTT program is always to generalize these skills into a child’s natural environment, across several different people and places. Chicago ABA Therapy will incorporate DTT-style programming in a child’s treatment program when appropriate.
