Event Details

This 13-hour interactive workshop is designed to teach educational and caregiver teams the theory and protocol for the Picture Exchange Communication System® (PECS®), an evidence-based augmentative/alternative communication system. Using presenter demonstrations, role-play opportunities, and video examples, participants will gain a thorough understanding and hands-on experience of each of the six phases of PECS. Participants will leave the training with the skills necessary to teach spontaneous requesting, picture discrimination, sentence structure, attributes for expanding language, extended vocabulary, responding to questions, and commenting. We also include tips for teaching your learner to accept being told “No,” and a discussion about transitioning from PECS to other communication modalities, such as speech, tablets with AAC apps, or speech generating devices.
