Free Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)

Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is designed to teach functional communication with an initial focus on spontaneity. It has been and continues to be implemented in a variety of settings (home, school, community) so students have the skills to communicate their wants and needs. PECS does not require complex or expensive materials since it uses picture symbols as the modality. Research has shown that many preschoolers using PECS also begin developing speech.
