Event description
This intensive one-day training workshop is designed to support communication opportunities and lesson planning across the school curriculum

About this Event

HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DOES YOUR STUDENT COMMUNICATE USING PECS? 5 EXCHANGES, MAYBE EVEN 10 OR 15… DID YOU KNOW THAT THE RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF PECS EXCHANGES PER STUDENT IS OVER 40 EACH SCHOOL DAY?

During this workshop you will learn how to embed and increase communication opportunities across the entire school day, from planning your lesson right through to some of the practicalities of successful implementation in the lesson itself. You will learn about increasing PECS use in familiar routines and activities outside of lessons, making the most of the entire school day. Using the Pyramid Approach to Education, you will consider the application of functional activities and reinforcement to support functional communication for all phases of PECS. Opportunities to complete lesson plans for PECS in different curriculum subjects will be built into the day, and you will get to see examples of successful communication opportunities in real classrooms from around the world.

Please note that prior attendance at a PECS Level 1 workshop is not required as this workshop does not cover the teaching of PECS phases.
