The PEAK Direct Training Module is an evidence-based autism assessment and treatment guide. PEAK uses the best practices of Applied Behavior Analysis to guide the novice or skilled therapist through all the necessary steps towards effective treatment for persons with autism and related disorders. PEAK stands apart from all other treatment guides and protocols in a variety of ways. First, it contains a reliable and valid assessment for determining what skills are present and deficit in a learner's repertoire. Second, it contains clear directions for how to collect, summarize, and report data for caregivers. Finally, PEAK contains 184 Goals/Objectives that can be immediately used for integration into IEPs and other clinical protocols. PEAK's Direct Training Module is the next generation of ABA Therapy. PEAK includes steps on how to teach manding, requesting, tacting, labeling, social and emotional descriptions, using metaphors, developing effective social exchanges, and speaking in front of various audiences. Don't settle for teaching only basic skills. Take the guess work out of what skills should come next in the learner's repertoire. PEAK will take the child with autism far beyond the other ABA treatment and program guides.

This is the most exciting behavioral product to hit the market, bar none. The PEAK Relational Training System is the ONLY protocol that fully accounts for the complexities of verbal and cognition for learners with autism. --Dr. Derek D. Reed, BCBA-D, University of Kansas
PEAK is simultaneously user friendly and elaborate. The modules are clearly explained and built for ease of implementation, but they reflect a sophisticated and ambitious curriculum. A client who completes PEAK will learn skills that are not even dreamed about in many other manualized curricula. --Dr. Thomas S. Critchfield, Illinois State University
This program has been the best thing to happen for my son. --Sherry Harshbarger, Mother of Dakota
