This research relied on software developed as the result of an award from the Economic and Social Research Council of Great Britain (RES-000-22-0142; Principal Investigator: Prof. Bob Remington).
Although Discrete-trial Teaching (DTT) is effective in teaching a many skills to children with autism, its proper implementation requires rigorous staff training. This study used an interactive computer simulation program (“DTkid”) to teach staff relevant DTT skills. Participants (N = 12) completed two sets of pre-tests either once (n = 7) or twice (n = 5) before brief DTkid training. These evaluated (a) simulated interactive teaching using DTkid and (b) in vivo teaching of three basic skills (receptive and expressive labeling; verbal imitation) to children with autism. Post-tests showed that DTkid training, rather than repeated testing, was significantly associated with improvements in staff’s ability to implement DTT both within the simulation and in vivo, and that the skills acquired showed both stimulus and response generalization.
