Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) is a research-based practice paired with Applied Behavioral Analysis strategies. DTT employs errorless teaching with error correction. Programs implementing DTT often use the VB-MAPP to assess and teach students specific skills. This course will review DTT, errorless teaching, as well as the VB-MAPP. Furthermore, level of professional development and coaching support will be discussed as well.

Through CLM, learners engage in 7 dynamic repertoires that are tied to Skinner’s verbal operants. Assessment, curriculum, and professional development are discussed in this overview of CLM.
