Agius, M. & Vance, M. (2015). A comparison of PECS and iPad to teach requesting to pre-schoolers with autistic spectrum disorders.

Augmentative and Alternative Communication, Nov 20, 1-11.
Abstract: Few studies have compared the efficacy of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and iPads used as speech generating devices (SGDs), and none have targeted preschoolers. This study compares the relative efficacy of PECS and an iPad/SGD with three preschool-aged children with autism spectrum disorder and limited functional speech who lived in Malta. Read More...

Bazain, D. & Bari, S. (2017). Communicating by using PECS for Children with Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome

Journal of Research and Development of Extraordinary Education, 4, 29-31. (Malaysia)
Abstract: This study discusses communication aid using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to children with Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome (RTS). RTS’s children suffer mental retardation, have the – the autistic, can not speak and can not manage themselves well. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of using PECS and RTS students can improve their language to communicate better to all.Read More...

Cagliani, R., Ayres, K., Whiteside, E. & Ringdahl, J. (2017). Picture Exchange Communication System and Delay to Reinforcement

Journal of Developmental and Physical Disabilities, 29 ,925-939.
Abstract: Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS) is a form of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) frequently used by individuals with autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability when speech development is delayed or does not develop (Bondy and Frost 1994 in Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 9, 1–19; Sunberg and Partington 1998). Researchers have previously evaluated variations of PECS as a means for vocalization development Read More...

Campos de Jesus, J., Oliveria, T. & Vieira de Rezende, J. (2017). Generalization of Mands Learned by PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) in Children with Autism

Trends in Psychology / Temas em,25, 531-543. (Brazil)
Abstract: Verbal training with the use of alternative communication is a tool for improving the social interaction of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (TEA). The aim of this study was to promote generalization of trained mands through the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Trained mands comprise the exchange of pictures with visual stimuli by the items themselves. There were 4 autists aged between 6 and 12 years old, who took part in the study. Read More...

Ferreira, C., Bevilacqua, M., Ishihara, M., Fiori, A., Armonia, A. & Perissinoto, J. (2017). Selection of words for implementation of the Picture Exchange Communication System – PECS in non-verbal autistic children.

Codas. 9;29. (Brazil).
Abstract: Purpose: It is known that some autistic individuals are considered non-verbal, since they are unable to use verbal language and barely use gestures to compensate for the absence of speech. Therefore, these individuals’ ability to communicate may benefit from the use of the Picture Exchange Communication System – PECS. The objective of this study was to verify the most frequently used words in the implementation of PECS in autistic children, and on a complementary basis, to analyze the correlation between the frequency of these words and the rate of maladaptive behaviors.

Hill, D. & Flores, M. (2014). Comparing the Picture Exchange Communication System and the iPad™ for communication of students with autism spectrum disorder and developmental delay

TechTrends, 58, 45-53.
Abstract: Both picture exchange, a low-tech picture based communication system, and technology based interventions, such as the iPad™ with communication application, are emerging treatments for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to the National Autism Center (2009).
