Advances in Speech-Language Pathology: PECS Training
Advances in Speech-Language Pathology: PECS Training Sponsored by Children’s Mercy Hearing and Speech in conjunction with Developmental and Behavioral Sciences
The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) provides useful methods for requesting objects, actions and people, in a way that requires and promotes social interaction.
Using the principles of applied behavior analysis, PECS starts by teaching spontaneous requesting followed by teaching to responding to questions as quickly as possible. The training also teaches how to comment about things in the environment.
While PECS was initially developed for young children with autism, it has been used successfully with a variety of learners of all ages, who have various cognitive, physical and communication challenges.
Save the date for this two day PECS Training conference here in Kansas City, Oct. 9-10, 2019.
