Lovaas’ Discrete Trial Approach

« Back to Glossary Index

This traditional behavioral approach is highly structured and often uses tangible reinforcers (e.g., candy or tokens) for specific behavior (e.g., eye contact or naming objects). The discrete trial approach typically requires approximately 30 to 40 hours per week, of intensive one-on-one specific response training (McEachin, Smith, & Lovaas, 1993).
