In this study, a multiple baseline study was done on 3 participants with disabilities. The PEAK-E assessment and curriculum was used on the participants to identify skills that needed to be taught, trained and tested. This was done to show the effectiveness of teaching stimulus equivalence and demonstrate the reliability and validity of the PEAK-E assessment and modules. The participants were assessed, taught new skills, tested on these new skills and then assessed again to see what gains had been made. The results show that all three participants were able to master the trained and tested relations in all their programs. The assessment that was administered before and after treatment showed results of gains in skills. Two of the participants results were not only limited to gains in the skills taught in treatment, but displayed other skills as well.
