This video provides an overview of the components of a discrete trial — the discriminative stimulus, the response from the child or prompt from the therapist, and finally, reinforcement or correction.
The Autism Intervention Training Video Series was designed for individuals in the beginning stages of learning how to conduct Applied Behavioural Analysis with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It is a series of videos demonstrating 5 of the key techniques needed for successful intervention: The Discrete Trial; Reinforcement; Prompting; Generalization; Incidental Teaching
The videos are intended to be a learning tool, used in conjunction with textbook, classroom and/or practice-based learning. Each video is short enough to be shown during class time with time left over for the instructor to cover the topics in more detail during lecture. These videos will be useful to students, paraprofessionals, professionals and parents.
