Okalidou, A., & Malandraki, G. (2007). The application of PECS in children with autism and deafness: A case study.

Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 22, 23‐32.
Abstract: The subject of this study is a 10‐year‐old non‐verbal Greek boy, who has been diagnosed with both bilateral sensory‐neural profound hearing loss and autism. The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), with some modifications and extensions, was applied for a 4‐month intensive intervention period. His original communication and behavioral status as well as the PECS application process are presented along with the communicative, language and psychosocial outcomes following the entire intervention program. In addition, follow‐up data are presented six months post‐intervention.
