This video provides an overview of the components of a discrete trial -- the discriminative stimulus, the response from the child or prompt from the therapist, and finally, reinforcement or correction. The Autism Intervention Training Video Series was designed for individuals in the beginning stages of learning how to conduct Applied Behavioural Analysis with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It is a series of videos demonstrating 5 of the key techniques needed for successful intervention: The Discrete Trial; Reinforcement; Prompting; Generalization; Incidental Teaching The videos are intended to be a learning tool, used in conjunction with textbook, classroom and/or practice-based learning. Each video is short enough to be shown during class time with time left over for the instructor to cover the topics in more detail during lecture. These videos will be useful to students, paraprofessionals, professionals and parents.

Documentary which explores the controversy around ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis), an intensive intervention used to treat autism. Parents who want ABA for their children passionately believe that it is the best way to teach a child new skills and to help them function in mainstream society, but critics of ABA argue that it is dehumanising and abusive to try to eliminate autistic behaviour. The film follows three-year-old Jack and four-year-old Jeremiah through their first term at Treetops School in Essex - the only state school in the UK which offers a full ABA programme. Neither boy has any language, Jeremiah finds it hard to engage with the world around him and Jack has severe issues with food. Both their parents have high hopes of the 'tough love' support that Treetops offers, but will struggle with their child's progress. We also meet Gunnar Frederiksen, a passionate and charismatic ABA consultant who works with families all over Europe. His view of autism - that it is a condition that can be cured and that families must work with their child as intensively and as early as possible if they want to take the child 'out of the condition' - is at odds with the way that many view autism today. Gunnar is working with three-year-old Tobias in Norway and has trained the parents so that they can work with him at home as his ABA tutors. He also introduces us to Richard, a 16-year-old from Sweden who was diagnosed with autism at the age of three and whose parents were told that he would be unlikely ever to speak. Today, Richard is 'indistinguishable from his peers' and plays badminton for the Swedish national team. In an emotional scene, Richard and his family look back at video recordings of the early ABA treatment and we are confronted both by the harshness of the method and the result of the intervention. These and other stories are intercut with the views and experiences from those who oppose ABA and who argue that at the heart of ABA is a drive to make children with autism as normal as possible, rather than accepting and celebrating their difference. Lee, an autistic mother of a son who has Aspergers, describes how the drive to make her behave and act like a 'normal' child broke her, and how she was determined to accept her son for who he was. The question of how far we accept autistic difference and how much should we push people with autism to fit into society's norms raises wider questions that affect us all - how do we achieve compliance in our children, how much should we expect children to conform and how far should parents push children to fit in with their own expectations?

Notice how Dr. Kelly remains calm and restates her direction when Paige leaves the table or looks for a reaction by grabbing at the tokens. Some learners may receive reinforcement or a token for every correct response. Paige is earning a token for several consecutive responses, as some of these questions are known items and are not new for Paige. Dr. Kelly provided the instruction to “sit down in your chair”, but then altered her instruction to “you can stand or sit, but you must stay at the table”. Choice was provided regarding sitting or standing; and providing choice really goes a long way. As they are completing the tasks, Dr. Kelly reminded Paige of what they are looking towards (playing chase). Because the preferred activity (chase) requires Dr. Kelly, it may be hypothesized that Paige enjoys and/or finds attention from Dr. Kelly to be reinforcing. Notice how Paige remains at the table, without being blocked in by the chair or Dr. Kelly. She is free to roam the room. However, Dr. Kelly’s attention and the tasks remain at the table, if Paige were to leave. Ultimately, if she ran from the table, instead of to the table, then we would need to adjust our approach (either increase the potency of the reinforcement —play chase sooner or decrease effort of the demands —ask fewer questions of Paige before playing chase). This is only one example of what an ABA session may look like. Please recognize that no two learners will learn, and no two instructors will teach, exactly the same way.
