Discrete Trial Training and Autism Ranking: Limited positive evidence

Personal Accounts

This section provides details of personal accounts of the use of discrete trial training for people on the autism spectrum.

Personal accounts can be useful sources of information about the intervention but are not as scientifically valid or reliable as research trials. This may be especially true where the accounts are published by an organisation which might gain a financial advantage from the take-up of the intervention.

Please note that the views expressed in these personal accounts do not necessarily represent the views of Research Autism.


We have yet to identify any personal accounts which are specifically about the use of discrete trial training and individuals on the autism spectrum. However we have identified numerous accounts of the use of ABA programmes which incorporate DTT.

These include accounts from the following websites

If you know of any personal accounts which are specifically about the use of discrete trial training and individuals on the autism spectrum that you think we should include please email info@researchautism.net with the details.
