Episode 11 - Preventing Errors in Discrete Trial Training

Rather than pull your hair out about that discrete trial program that JUST...ISN'T...WORKING, why not listen to us discuss some possible solutions.  We review research on minimizing overselectivity using a differential observing response and on using more salient behavior-consequence relations all in the name of helping you avoid those pesky DTT error patterns.  Plus, we share the secrets of remembering the 140 Crayola crayon colors, literal reinforcer stacking, and Rob's Boston accent.
