This picture exchange communication system (PECS) is used to rapidly teach communication skills to those with limited functional speech. PECS pro-motes communication within a social context without lengthy prerequisite training. Training in PECS begins by teaching a spontaneous request and goes on to teach additional communicative functions such as responding to questions and comment-ing. An added attraction for preschool children with autism and related disabilities is the high proportion of children who acquire independent speech. Participants will learn how to implement the six phases of PECS, plus attributes through pre-senter demonstration, video examples and role play opportunities. Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to implement PECS for the individuals with autism, related developmental disabilities and/or limited commu-nication skills.
