PECS: Level 1 Training
This workshop will meet November 3rd and 4th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. Target Audience This session is designed for all members of the educational team who would like to learn about the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) including speech-language pathologists, parents, teachers, paraprofessionals, behavior analysists, psychologists, social workers, and/or other professionals who are providing services to/for individuals with developmental disabilities. Description of Workshop This two-day training is designed to teach participants the theory behind the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and the protocols for how to appropriately implement the six phases of PECS. This Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is used to rapidly teach communication skills to those with limited functional speech. PECS promotes communication within a social context, without lengthy prerequisite training. Training in PECS begins by teaching a spontaneous request and goes on to teach additional communicative functions such as responding to questions and commenting. An added attraction for preschool children with autism and related disabilities is the high proportion of children who acquire independent speech. Participants will learn how to implement the six phases of PECS, plus attributes, through presenter demonstrations, video examples, and role-play opportunities. Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to implement PECS with individuals with autism, related developmental disabilities, and/or limited communication skills.
