8-7 and 8-8-19 PECS Training- Fee $100 for Member Districts, $200 Fee for Non Member Districts

Wednesday, August 7, 2019 - Thursday, August 8, 2019

This intensive two-day interactive training is designed to teach educational teams the theory and protocol for the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), an evidence based practice. We begin with identifying key components to designing effective educational environments that foster communication. Through presenter demonstrations, video examples and role-play, you will learn the six phases of PECS, including how to teach spontaneous requests, attributes for expanding language, responding to questions and commenting. The workshop concludes with discussions about the relation between PECS and speech as well as criteria for transitioning from PECS to other communication modalities, such as speech generating devices (SGD)
