It is not a program designed to teach speech, although the latter is encouraged indirectly and some children begin to spontaneously use speech while enrolled in the PECS program.
The PECS training program was developed at the Delaware Autistic Program.
Generally the training is provided at a two-day workshop.
If you choose to use PECS (as opposed to just offering picture cards as a tool for communication) you must be trained through Pyramid Products.
And, just as "kleenex" has come to mean the same thing as "tissue," PECS has lost much of its brand association.
But PECS is actually a trademarked program of Pyramid Educational Products, a small corporation founded in the 1980s by Lori Frost and Andrew Bondy.
Pyramid Educational Consultants is the worldwide source for both the Pyramid Approach to Education and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).
Our goal is to provide the highest quality of training, consultation and support to parents, caregivers and professionals in the field of autism and developmental disabilities.
