The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) has been used to help children and youth with ASD develop a system for communicating with teachers, parents, and peers across multiple environments. PECS was initially developed as an alternative communication system and has since been demonstrated in the research literature to promote speech development and production. This module will define PECS, outline the steps to effectively implement this evidence-based practice, and provide specific examples for its use across settings and age groups.
