ABA is an applied scientific discipline and methods in ABA have been extremely effective for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is an effective teaching strategy for children with autism, that falls under ABA. It breaks down skills into small, “discrete” components and the ABA therapist teaches these skills one by one. Along the way, the ABA therapist uses prompts, modeling, and positive reinforcement strategies like rewarding the child with a candy or a toy to facilitate the child's learning. For example, the instructor may reward a child if he/she interacts with another person maintaining eye contact. The idea is if they are rewarded they are likely to perform it more often and with enough practice, they will eventually acquire the skill. There are other ABA teaching strategies as well and they differ primarily in what types of rewards are given, and whether the therapists use a highly structured format or more play activities.

This could make him more likely to eat it than when he sees it first hand on the plate.
