The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is an augmentative /alternative communication strategy for those who display little or no speech.
In related areas of clinical research, studies examining picture communication found the picture exchange communication system (PECS) to be effective for teaching functional communication to children with limited speech (Bondy and Frost, 2001; Charlop-Christy, Carpenter, Le, LeBlanc, and Kellet, 2002; Ganz and Simpson, 2004), while studies examining manual signs or total communication found faster receptive and/or expressive vocabulary acquisition than speech alone (Brady & Smouse, 1978; Barrera, Lobato-Barrera, & Sulzer-Azaroff, 1980).
