PECS Basic Training

The PECS Basic Training is appropriate for parents and professionals working with learners with autism, related disabilities and/or limited communication skills.  Seats are still available, but filling rapidly!

This two-day training begins with an overview of the Pyramid Approach to Education.  This includes factors related to establishing an effective learning/communicative environment.  Specific topics include functional activities, powerful reinforcers, functional communication, identification and replacement of Contextually Inappropriate Behaviors, generalization, lesson formats, teaching strategies, error correction and data collection/analysis.


The training then goes on to describe the six phases of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) protocol.  PECS begins by teaching an individual to request desired items, by exchanging a picture with a communication partner. The system goes on to teach discrimination of pictures and sentence structure.  In the more advanced phases, individuals are taught to use attributes, answer questions and comment.  PECS is an evidence-based strategy, with supportive research from countries around the world.
