The Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABBLS) is an assessment that provides an extensive review of 544 skills including language, social interaction, self-help, academic and motor skills. The information obtained from both assessments allows both the team and parents to identify where the child’s deficits and strengths lie. For basic living, community and home skills we use The Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS).
PEAK is an assessment tool developed by Dr. Mark Dixon to teach language and skills to children with autism using a Relational frame theory approach. The goal of PEAK is not to teach the child to simply memorize answers, but it teaches them to problem solve and critically think.
