The College of Speech Language & Hearing Sciences, Ziauddin University held a 2 days Training for Level 1 PECS. The workshop started from the 21st and ended on the 2nd February’2019.
PECS is a unique alternative/augmentative communication system developed in the USA in 1985 by Andy Bondy, PhD, and Lori Frost, MS, CCC-SLP. PECS was first implemented with pre-school students diagnosed with autism at the Delaware Autism Program. Since then, PECS has successfully been implemented worldwide with thousands of learners of all ages who have various cognitive, physical and communication challenges.
It was conducted by the International trainers from U.K, Ms. Christina Hornes – Bsc Psychology and Special Education & Louisse Maggs BSC. Speech Language Therapy.
PECS was one successful event and reminded us, participants, as clinicians and student clinicians, the importance of communication, whether verbal or nonverbal. Undoubtedly, all participants have massively benefited from this training program and equally excited to implement on our patients with Impaired communication. Looking forward to arrange PEC’s training for Level 2 soon.
