PECS Level 2 (Advanced) 2 Day Workshop
Take your PECS implementation skills to the next level and see how far your students can go!
Requirement: completion of the ‘PECS Basic Training’ Workshop
Let us help you create lessons that turn your PECS user into someone who communicates in all situations using longer sentences. A review of the six Phases of PECS and discussions about your current challenges combined with ideas related to materials, teaching strategies and activities to promote communication will refine your PECS implementation skills. With innovative ideas, renewed confidence and enthusiasm you will leave PECS Level 2 ready to move PECS users to more sophisticated levels of communication.
This workshop, appropriate for parents as well as professionals, is a combination of the ‘PECS Advanced Training Review, Practice and Problem Solving’ and ‘Incorporating PECS across the Day’. Day 1 will focus on a review of the phases of PECS. You will have the opportunity to practice your PECS skills and overcome any implementation problems you may be experiencing including discrimination difficulties and strategies. Day 2 will focus on learning how to create environments to use PECS successfully in different situations throughout the whole day; it will also cover when students are expected to use language beyond single picture requests.
