PECS is an evidence-based, functional communication system often implemented with individuals who are nonverbal, or who have limited speech.

  • Part One of this 2-part series provides caregivers with an overview of the PECS system; the supporting evidence and summary of the various phases.
  • Part Two, caregivers will learn how to recognize motivation, identify preferred items and practice the communication exchange. 

After completing the 2-part series caregivers are eligible for consultation to assist with individual questions. Assistance with material prep may also be provided.
