• EBIT Therapy ABA Techniques and Practices

    Evidence Based Practice Implementation


    1. Antecedent Based Intervention (ABI)

    Arrangement of events preceding an interfering behavior to prevent or reduce occurrence

    2. Differential Reinforcement of Alternative, Incompatible or Other Behavior (DRA/I/O)

    Consequences provided for desired behaviors that reduce the occurrence of interfering behaviors

    3. Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

    Instructional process of repeated trials, consisting of instruction , response and consequence

    4. Exercise (ECE)

    Antecedent based physical exertion to reduce interfering behaviors or increase appropriate behaviors

    5. Extinction (EXT)

    Removal of existing reinforcement in order to reduce an interfering behavior

    6. Functional Communication Training (FCT)

    Replacement of an interfering behavior with communication that accomplishes the same function

    7. Modeling (MD)

    Demonstration of a desired behavior that results in a skill acquisition through learner imitation

    8. Naturalistic Intervention (NI)

    Intervention strategies that occur with the learner’s typical settings and routines

    9. Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)

    Systematic 6 phase protocol teaching the exchange of pictures between communicative partners

    10. Pivotal Response Training  (PRT)

    Pivotal learning variables guide intervention implemented in settings that build on learner interests and initiative

    11. Prompting (PP)

    Verbal, gestural, or physical assistance that supports skill acquisition

    12. Reinforcement +

    A response occurring after a behavior resulting in an increased likelihood of future reoccurrence of the behavior

    13. Response Interruption / Redirection (RIR)

    Use of prompts or distractors during an interfering behavior that diverts attention and reduces the behavior

    14. Scripting (SC)

    A verbal or written model of a skill or situation that is practiced before use in context

    15. Self-Management (SM)

    Instruction on discrimination between appropriate and inappropriate behaviors and accurate self-monitoring and rewarding of behaviors

    16. Social Narratives (SN)

    Descriptions of social situations with examples of appropriate responding

    17. Social Skills Training (SST)

    Direct instruction on social skills with rehearsal and feedback to increase positive peer interaction

    18. Task Analysis (TA)

    The process of breaking a skill into small steps that are systematically chained together

    19. Time Delay (TD)

    Delaying a prompt during a practice opportunity in order to fade the use of prompts

    20. Video Modeling (VM)

    A video recording of a targeted skills that is viewed to assist in learning

    21. Visual Support (VS)

    Visual display that supports independent skill use
