MODULE: Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)
While any team member may use PECS procedures, it is recommended that those interested in doing so receive professional training. Training is available from the individuals who developed and market the PECS system through Pyramid Educational Consultants, Inc. (For more information, see http://www.pecs.com.). The information in this module is intended to provide a detailed overview of how PECS may be successfully implemented and to supplement training for parents and paraprofessionals working with a child or youth with ASD in a variety of educational and community-based settings. PECS can be implemented anywhere communication is desired or needed and across a variety of home, school, and community settings (see evidence-base reference list in the Resources section).
