The PECS Start-Up is appropriate for learners with no prior training in PECS. Our consultants will begin with a brief overview of the PECS protocol, which includes relevant information for establishing effective communicative environments. Family and/or professionals will have a chance to practice each of the early phases of PECS implementation within a structured training session. A reinforcer assessment will be conducted, as the first lesson will be to teach the learner to request a preferred/reinforcing item. Next, Phase I trials will be conducted with the learner, with family/professionals participating in active training. Additional phases will be implemented as appropriate. The Nine Critical Communication Skills will also be assessed. Detailed recommendations will be discussed with all team members prior to the end of the session. A comprehensive report will be delivered within two weeks of the consultation.
