Quantity in Basket: None
©2002. By Andy Bondy, Ph.D., and Lori Frost, M.S. This book was written to help parents and professionals understand communication difficulties in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who have not acquired functional language. The authors are the creators of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), a nonverbal visual system that has helped children with ASD learn to communicate. This guide describes the relationship between communication and behavioral difficulties, various visual intervention strategies (including PECS), and the methods for choosing the appropriate intervention strategy for a particular child. The authors' primary goal is to help children with ASD learn how to develop functional communication skills. (Softcover; 155 pages.)
