Prerequisite: PECS Level 1 Training
This training will show you how to teach PECS with fidelity so your learners don’t get stuck on early Phases of PECS. 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 the PECS Level 2 Training ready to move PECS users to more sophisticated levels of communication.
What you will learn
- How the components of the Pyramid Approach to Education are directly related to proper implementation of the PECS protocol
- How to incorporate communication within daily activities and routines
- How to develop advanced PECS lessons
