Description

Written by Andy Bondy, Ph.D., and Lori Frost, M.S., CCC-SLP, 2011, 160 pages, 21 photos.

Written by our very own Andy Bondy and Lori Frost, A Picture’s Worth, 2nd Edition, examines the value of nonverbal communication strategies for individuals with autism, and describes the Picture Exchange Communication System™ (PECS). Without the ability to express themselves, individuals with autism experience a high level of frustration, which is the root cause of many undesirable behaviours. The book explores the relationship between behaviour and communication, teaching parents how to recognise patterns in their child’s behaviour and when to implement an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system such as PECS. This new edition cites research that proves PECS (and other AAC strategies) does not interfere with the development of speaking skills, and actually often provides a boost to speech acquisition. Thousands of people with autism and other speech disabilities have benefited from using PECS. The book’s complete set of introductory lessons makes it easy for parents and therapists to get started using this low-tech strategy to help anyone develop effective communication skills!
