EdKinetic Resource Archive
These resources were designed to meet the diverse needs of the classroom setting, and to support assessment and educational program development using discrete trial instruction and the Verbal Behavior Milestone Assessment and Program Placement (VB MAPP), developed by Dr. Mark Sundberg. Training on the use of these resources is provided in the workshop entitled “Developing Comprehensive Educational Programs for Learners with Autism” and through on-site consultation. Other resources provided support explicit instruction, social skills and manding instruction, and other valuable teaching resources for learners of all ages.
“I developed these resources from my experiences in classroom settings over the past 10 years, as well as my foundational training, which began at the Carbone Clinic in New York. I want to thank Dr. Vincent Carbone and his skilled staff for those learning opportunities and his direct influence on the current system of educational program development and data collection shared here.”

Educational Program Summaries
- Educational Program Forms are used to summarize a learner’s educational program after current instructional levels are determined from assessment. It provides an at-a-glance view that can be shared and reviewed as progress is monitored.
- Skills Data – can guide the sequencing of educational programs and skills taught within the programs, enable analysis of error patterns that may lead to instructional changes, show progress toward the pre-established mastery criteria, and aid in data-based decision making.
- Mand Data – is used to evaluate frequency of learner manding and progress toward independent and spontaneous manding.
- ABC Data – collect data on maladaptive behaviors that interfere with an individual’s opportunity to learn or the learning of others. Data provides daily information on the number of episodes, duration of episodes, and the antecedent, behavior(s), and consequence(s) for each episode allowing for analysis of function, type, severity, and duration of problem behavior.
- Monthly graphs are for data collection by month. The X axis can be used to indicate session number or date.
- Monthly graphs by week are for use in settings where weekend data is not collected, such as a classroom.
