This video provides an illustration of discrete trial training with a learner with autism within an ABA program. The viewer will note that procedures designed to increase the learner’s motivation to respond are being implemented. These procedures include a brisk pace of instruction, a high rate of correct responding through errorless teaching, the mixing and varying of tasks, and the interspersal of a high rate of mastery skills to targets. Learners who receive individualized one-on-one instruction may spend from 15 minutes to 30 minutes per hour in this type of learning activity.
