[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

Discrete trial instruction (DTI; Smith, 2001) has been widely used to teach a variety of skills to individuals with autism spectrum disorder. A new modification of DTI, referred to as instructive feedback, involves incorporating secondary targets into learning trials. These secondary targets are presented in the absence of direct teaching (i.e., prompts, reinforcement, error correction). This modification of DTI has been found to increase instructional efficiency because individuals learn additional targets without requiring additional training time. The current webinar will provide an introduction to and examples of instructive feedback, a review of recent research on instructive feedback, and recommendations for clinical application and future research.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this event participants should be able to:

  • Describe a variety of possible ways to incorporate secondary targets into learning trials
  • Use instructive feedback in clinical practice
  • Assess effectiveness and efficiency of instructive feedback in clinical practice through appropriate data collection
  • Discuss previous research on instructive feedback
