Sandy Pih, an early intervention teacher discusses how the interactive, innately social structure of PECS, the Picture Exchange Communication System, promotes both social communication and language development.
"What we are trying to teach in our classroom we work more on of a social communication being able to tell a another communicative partner this is the message i convey to you ...and that's why I started using PECS because it really is interactive. "
