Session Detail

PECS Level 1
Picture Exchange Communication System

The Picture Exchange Communication System® (PECS®) was developed in 1985 as a unique augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system. PECS teaches individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other communication challenges the
foundations of communication, including both requesting and commenting skills. PECS has received worldwide recognition for focusing on the initiation component of communication. In addition, many individuals transition from PECS to speech or a Speech Generating Device (SGD). PECS does not require complex or expensive materials. It was created with educators, resident care providers and families in mind, and so it is readily used in a variety of settings.
