  • Discrete Trial Training (DTT)
    DTT is a style of teaching that uses a series of trials to teach each step of a desired behavior or response. Lessons are broken down into their simplest parts and positive reinforcement is used to reward correct answers and behaviors. Incorrect answers are ignored.
  • Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI)
    This is a type of ABA for very young children with an ASD, usually younger than five, and often younger than three.
  • Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
    PRT aims to increase a child’s motivation to learn, monitor his own behavior, and initiate communication with others. Positive changes in these behaviors should have widespread effects on other behaviors.
  • Verbal Behavior Intervention (VBI)
    VBI is a type of ABA that focuses on teaching verbal skills.
  • This would all be under the guidance of a paediactric psychologist or psychiatrist
