Andrew Bondy, Ph.D., Lori Frost M.S., CCC/SLP           156 pages/ 1995

Examining the value of nonverbal communication strategies for children with autism who do not speak, this title presents the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) developed by authors. PECS allows a child to use pictures to express his needs and desires without prompting from another person. Includes a set of PECS lessons for parents to begin and maintain a PECS program for their child.
