PECS Level 1 (Basic) 2 Day Workshop

What could be more valuable than giving your student/child the ability to communicate? PECS is a tried-and-tested approach that uses pictures to develop communication skills in children and adults with a wide range of learning difficulties. Easy to access, affordable to implement and scientifically supported as one of the most effective interventions, PECS is an opportunity to open the door to spontaneous communication.

 This intensive two-day training is designed to teach participants the theory behind the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and the protocols for how to appropriately implement the six phases of PECS.

The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is used to rapidly teach communication skills to those with limited functional speech.  PECS promotes communication within a social context, without lengthy prerequisite training.  Training in PECS begins by teaching a spontaneous request and goes on to teach additional communicative functions such as responding to questions and commenting.  An added attraction for preschool children with autism and related disabilities is the high proportion of children who acquire independent speech.  Participants will learn how to implement the six phases of PECS, plus attributes, through presenter demonstrations, video examples and role-play opportunities.  Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to implement PECS with individuals with autism, related developmental disabilities, and/or limited communication skills. 

This workshop is the basic accredited training in PECS and recommended for parents as well as professionals.

Benefits of PECS training:

  What you will learn:

Training is essential: Learning first-hand will teach you how to move through this structured approach and avoid misunderstandings which can prevent progress. This workshop is also a basic requirement for further training in PECS, such as the certification process and advanced PECS training.
 Pyramid Educational Consultants UK, the only official training provider of PECS in the UK, has trained over 50,000 people. We offer training, customised consultancy and resources to support PECS and the Pyramid Approach to Education.
  

"I have been using PECS in my classroom for 4 or 5 years, but had been taught by others, who had been on the course. Now I have it from the horses mouth, and it is much better. I can see WHY the students have got stuck at a particular phase and what I should have done about it. I wish I had the opportunity at the beginning to do the course, I think my students would have made better progress. Hopefully my classroom can be more effective now."

"Very inspiring. I had been feeling very disheartened about my daughters non-ability to communicate. I now feel I have the tools to tackle this and take control."
