The research study was a single-subject design with multiple baseline across participants. The purpose of the study was for individuals with Autism and intellectual disabilities to be able to generalize the following emotions: happy, sad, tired, mad and scared by utilizing Discrete Trial Training in a variety of settings. Baseline consisted of a scenario or video clip shown to the participant. The participant determined the emotion the person displayed three times daily for five days. The intervention consisted of implementation of Discrete Trial Training for a total of ten minute sessions daily for four consecutive weeks. There were three opportunities daily provided for each participant. Post-intervention determined if the participants were able to generalize emotions in multiple settings by the use of a scenario or video clip provided for 5 days. Overall, this research displayed that using Discrete Trial Training intervention consecutively was an effective intervention for the participants in this case study.
