Bondy, A. & Frost, L. (1998). The picture exchange communication system.

Seminars in Speech and Language, 19, 373–389.
Abstract: The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) was developed as a means to teach children with autism and related developmental disabilities a rapidly acquired, self‐initiating, functional communication system. Its theoretical roots combine principles from applied behavior analysis and guidelines established within the field of alternative and augmentative communication. Read More...

Bondy, A. & Frost, L. (2001). The Picture Exchange Communication System.

Behavior Modification, 25, 725‐744.
Abstract: The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is an alternative/augmentative communication system that was developed to teach functional communication to children with limited speech. The approach is unique in that it teaches children to initiate communicative interactions within a social framework. Read More...

Bondy, A., & Frost, L. (1994). The picture exchange communication system.

Focus on Autistic Behavior, 9, 1–19.
Abstract: A variety of strategies have been used to help children with autism acquire functional communication skills. The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is a unique communication training program that was developed as a means of circumventing some shortcomings associated with these strategies.

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...

Carson, L., Moosa, T., Theruer, J. & Cardy, J.O. (2012). The Collateral Effects of PECS Training on Speech Development in Children with Autism.

Canadian Journal of Speech‐Language Pathology and Audiology, 36, 182‐195.
Abstract: Research suggests that 25 to 61% of children with autism will use little or no functional speech to communicate. For these children, many speech‐language pathologists will teach the use of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Studies have reported some children go on to develop functional speech after using PECS. What remains unclear is (i) which children will begin to use functional verbal abilities, and (ii) why this occurs for some and not others. Read More...

Charlop‐Christy, M.H., Carpenter, M, Le, L., LeBlanc, L, & Kelley, K. (2002). Using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) with children with autism: Assessment of PECS acquisition, speech, social‐communicative behavior, and problem behaviors.

Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 35, 213‐231.
Abstract: The picture exchange communication system (PECS) is an augmentative communication system frequently used with children with autism (Bondy & Frost, 1994; Siegel, 2000; Yamall, 2000). Despite its common clinical use, no well‐controlled empirical investigations have been conducted to test the effectiveness of PECS. Using a multiple baseline design, the present study examined the acquisition of PECS with 3 children with autism. Read More...

Fillipin, M., Reszka, S. & Watson, L. (2010). Effectiveness of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) on communication and speech for children with autism spectrum disorders: A Metanalysis.

American Journal of Speech‐Language Pathology. (Online version).
Abstract: Purpose: The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is a popular communication training program for young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This metanalysis reviews the current empirical evidence for PECS in impacting communication and speech outcomes for children with ASD. Methods: A systematic review of the literature on PECS written between 1994 and June 2009 was conducted. Read More...

Ganz, J. & Simpson, R. (2004). Effects on communicative requesting and speech development of the Picture Exchange Communication System in children with characteristics of autism.

Journal of Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 34, 395‐409.
Abstract: Few studies on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems have addressed the potential for such systems to impact word utterances in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is an AAC system designed specifically to minimize difficulties with communication skills experienced by individuals with ASD. Read More...

Ganz, J., Simpson, R. & Corbin‐Newsome, J. (2008). The impact of the Picture Exchange Communication System on requesting and speech development in preschoolers with autism spectrum disorders and similar characteristics.

Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2, 157–169.
Abstract: By definition children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) experience difficulty understanding and using language. Accordingly, visual and picture‐based strategies such as the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) show promise in ameliorating speech and language deficits. Read More...
