In this study, we demonstrate the use of conjoint behavioral consultation (CBC) as a main model to join parents and educators in the shared development and implementation of comprehensive interventions for students. A cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) model and schema-based instruction (SBI) served as an intervention and delivered in the context of CBC to enhance mathematical resilience. A multiple probe design across participants was used. The mothers and teachers of three boys between the ages of 10 and 11 years who were exhibiting performance deficits on the mathematics outcomes served as consultation participants. Direct observation data suggest that intervention implemented within the context of CBC was related to increases in mathematical resilience. In general positive changes were noted from pretreatment to post treatment administrations of the well-being questioner. Measures of treatment acceptability, treatment integrity, and social validity also yielded positive results. This study lends support to the use of CBC as a means of joining parents and teachers in the delivery of effective academic and behavioral interventions.
