This portion of our autism summer institute will focus on a new approach to teaching complex behaviors to students with ASD. Often, these students become “stuck” at the concrete level of language comprehension. What does a word like “big” really mean? The PEAK Relational Training System in an evaluation and curriculum guide for teaching basic and advanced language skills from a contemporary behavior analytic approach. It differs from traditional verbal behavior (VB) approaches in that it specifically evaluates and teaches children the relation and complex repertoires needed to respond to their world with meaning and understanding. This program was designed for teachers in public school settings; don’t let the behavior analysis approach scare you away!
