Working with PECS
The following clip displays two therapists teaching a child with autism how to use PECS, the Picture Exchange Communication System. PECS is taught to children on the spectrum in order to provide them with an additional, nonverbal way to communicate, an essential tool for children whose spoken language is greatly delayed or absent. Leighdionne repeatedly practices using PECS to request a cracker until she needs less guidance from the therapist to complete the exercise.
