Applied behavior analysis offers the most effective treatment for autism: Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention. It involves identifying children as early as possible, assessing the child’s learning needs, and setting up structured learning opportunities with clear instructions, fun and exciting consequences, and repeated practice until the child has learned the skill. These structured learning opportunities are called Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) sessions.
