This two day training will provide consultants within PATTAN’s Autism Initiative ABA Supports advanced training in specific protocols and concepts derived from the field of ABA, and directly related to providing excellent training and technical support to school based staff serving students with autism. Content will focus on how to guide teachers in developing interventions that involve skills for social-communicative functioning.

Specific topics to be address include:

  • Conditioned Motivating Operations-Reflexive (CMO-R)
  • Joint Control (establishing critical self-monitoring strategy)
  • Discussion of relational frame vis a vis joint control (establishing complex speaker skills)
  • Social skills

Additionally, the training will involve case reviews in which consultants will provide data regarding consultation efforts. Dr. Carbone will provide technical review of each case study and suggest additional considerations.


Participants will:

  1. identify strategies to alter environmental variables affecting instructional control.
  2. state the conceptual basis for a Conditioned Motivating Operation-Reflexive including distinguishing between stimulus control and motivative variables.
  3. demonstrate the procedures for teaching multiple listener responding discriminations using joint control methods, including use of verbal rehearsal strategies.
  4. list steps in use of autoclitic relational frames (for instance, using a statement of class relation) to teach intraverbal responding for feature, function, and class relations.
  5. compare various social skill sequences applicable for autism spectrum disorders.
  6. review and analyze case studies based on key consultative competencies.
