This finding contradicts the results of previous studies, suggesting that further research is needed. Visual analysis of the results indicated that all participants required more prompted trials and sessions for the i Pad/SGD condition. These studies have generally focused on evaluating the PECS curriculum as it is written, but questions regarding how best to modify stimulus materials to teach individuals with deficits in simple discrimination remain unanswered. Effectiveness of Combining Tangible Symbols with the Picture Exchange Communication System to Teach Requesting Skills to Children with Multiple Disabilities including Visual Impairment. Generalization Issues Pertaining to the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). These results suggest that PECS, in combination with some minor adaptations, may be an effective communicative alternative for individuals who are deafblind and have learning impairments. Communicative initiations and dyadic interactions increased significantly between the children and teachers in the PECS group but not for the control group. Three 5–6 year-old children, diagnosed as autistic and/or developmentally disabled, were given 1:1 PECS training at school, structured to enhance generalisation and transfer. The Collateral Effects of PECS Training on Speech Development in Children with Autism. Abstract: Research suggests that 25 to 61% of children with autism will use little or no functional speech to communicate. H., Carpenter, M, Le, L., Le Blanc, L, & Kelley, K. Using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) with children with autism: Assessment of PECS acquisition, speech, social-communicative behavior, and problem behaviors. Abstract: The picture exchange communication system (PECS) is an augmentative communication system frequently used with children with autism (Bondy & Frost, 1994; Siegel, 2000; Yamall, 2000).
All participants learned a three step navigational sequence on the i Pad. The present study examined the effectiveness of modified stimulus presentation on the percentage of trials the preferred edible/icon was selected within a picture exchange communication training program. Abstract: The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) program used to teach functional requesting and commenting skills to people with disabilities (Bondy & Frost, 1993; Frost & Bondy, 2002). Concurrent observations were made in their regular classroom and at home to probe the extent of generalisation. For these children, many speech-language pathologists will teach the use of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Despite its common clinical use, no well-controlled empirical investigations have been conducted to test the effectiveness of PECS.
