Autism Treatment Improves Reading Comprehension

Does your child or student have autism? If you want help with the signs of autism, use our diagnostic checklist first. Then come back to this page.

Discrete trial training (DTT) is particularly effective for teaching skills to children with autism. DTT was one of the very first interventions developed for autism and has extensive research supporting it. 

Autism Discreet Trial Training

What is Discrete Trial Training?

The discrete trial method has four distinct parts:​

  1. the trainer's presentation (the antecedent)​
  2. the learner's response (the behaviour)
  3. the consequence
  4. a short pause between the consequence and the next instruction

The term consequence is merely the feedback the learner gets. It does not mean punishment. For example when you’re hungry (antecedent), you eat something (behavior) and then you feel better (consequence). You enjoyed a positive consequence for your behavior, and this increases the likelihood that you’ll again eat when hungry in the future!

More than 30 years of research has shown that Fast ForWord works.

It is not sold in stores because it requires professional oversight. We help kids with autism overcome auditory processing difficulties. They subsequently learn to how read.
