How do we help? Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)
Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) Why do we use PECS? To teach the child to initiate communication. (To approach a person to make a request rather than making it into thin air!) PECS phases (there are 6) parallel typical language development. Develops requesting, making sentences, developing vocabulary concepts, responding to “what do you want?” and commenting.
1. Picture exchange. One picture. 2.Persistence and distance. 3. Discrimination 4. making “ I want….strip” 5. Responding to “What do you want?” 6. Commenting and developing concepts: “I see..” and “I hear…” Phases of PECS.
