Episode 42 - CMOs

On this week's episode we discuss CMO-R's, CMO-T's, and everything in between.  Is it possible to improve discrete trial training with a better understanding of why kids hate DTT? And how can we shift student motivation to improve discrimination in PECS training? Then, between all of Diana and Jackie's smart talkin', Rob gets the ultimate revenge on those who have wronged him! Don't forget to download this; our absence serves as a CMO-P (for podcast).
