PECS

What is PECS?

Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is a form of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). It is typically used as an aid in communication for children with autism and other special needs. The system has been successful with a variety of ages including preschoolers, adolescents and adults who have a wide array of communicative, cognitive and physical difficulties.

The Large PECS Communication Notebook is a picture ready portable notebook with strips of velcro ready to use on two tough vinyl pages. The front cover and the inner part of the back cover also serve as pages for the picture symbols. The PECS notebook makes coordinating a Picture Communication Program easy and efficient. A sentence strip with velcro runs across the lip of the longer back cover of the notebook.

Social Behavior Map Template on a Dry Erase Surface

The idea for the Social Thinking Posters came from observing in classrooms across America that we usually fail to provide explicit information in the classrooms to reinforce related social thinking concepts. However, a classroom cannot function if the students are not actively engaged in appropriate social behavior for that environment. The posters provide the information in a light hearted way to continue to encourage humor in our teaching of social thinking and related skills.

April is Autism Awareness Month!

Baby, Toddler, and Preschool Sign Language

Signing Families introduces their newest DVD...Baby, Toddler, Preschool Sign Language with Louise and Friends. This DVD was made especially for families, children, caregivers, and teachers who live and work with young children. Signing with a child helps foster language development, form bonds between caregiver and child, and reduces negative behavior because a child is able to communicate their wants and needs. Baby, Toddler, Preschool Sign Language with Louise and Friends is comprised of dozens of signs typically demonstrated by children during their early years of development. Louise models and explains the signs by providing easy to follow directions to assist adults and children in learning sign language. The first chapters show signs for basic needs such as MORE, EAT, SLEEP, MILK and DRINK. Subsequent chapters match the typical progression of language development of children, as they grow older; thus, the DVD instruction continues with signs to help children with learning transitions such as getting dressed and playtime. This DVD incorporates signs for courtesies including PLEASE and THANK YOU and helps increase cooperation with signs like SHARE, TAKE TURNS, and WAIT. All instruction is voiced and signed. A Bonus section is included that demonstrates signing the ABC s and the Numbers 1-10 (both English and Spanish). Lastly, many signs are reintroduced with Spanish narration. Adults who live and work with children who have speech and language delays, autism or other special needs will find this DVD beneficial in helping children develop language skills. In total the viewers of Baby, Toddler, Preschool Sign Language with Louise and Friends will introduce you to nearly 100 signs in English and Spanish! Come join us on our sign language journey!!!!

Flashcard Question Set

Children understand the value of Wh questions when events are broken down into structured questions. These question sequences helps the child to answer questions in context. Each question sequence contains a "Where, Why, What, Who and When" question. "Why do you eat breakfast?" "Because you're hungry", is just a piece of arbitrary information. Putting questions into sequence gives meaning to the questions and helps the child understand an event. You eat when you're hungry, you make breakfast in the kitchen, you can eat cereal for breakfast, you wash the dishes when you're done and you need a spoon for cereal. These question sequences help a child make sense of their world. This pack has question sequences about all the things a child does at home. Some examples are hide and seek, taking a bath, brushing our teeth, baking cookies, doing laundry and eating breakfast.

Some Parts are not for Sharing Book

      Autism is a disorder that many parents, relatives and guardians should be aware of. My wife and I are contemplating taking our 6 year old to have her check for autism. Excellent lens

      Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often can be reliably detected by age 3. In some cases even earlier than that. Recent studies suggest that kids may eventually be accurately diagnosed by the age of 1 year or even younger. One thing for certain is that if your child shows any of the early warning signs of autism then they should be evaluated by a professional who specializes in autism disorders.
