This paper presents the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), which is a behaviorally image based message that was developed in 1985 by Andrew S. Bondy Ph. D and Lori Frost, M.S., CCC/SLP in order to help children under the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to communicate with their environment. In this work I would like to present to the reader the theory behind this social intervention for children with autism which is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), then I want to explain the six phases of PECS, and the application within the classroom settings. At the end, these definitions would help us to better understand concepts and try to apply this technique in our diverse teaching-learning settings in order to help children under the Autism
The non-verbal students had AAC devices that the SLP programed for each of their specific needs. The student that the SLP was working with had Cerebral Palsy. The student had stuff, tight muscle tone, was not able to walk, was unable to speak and had an intellectual impairment. Although the student was unable to speak, his AAC device spoke for him. The student could touch a button on the screen that would tell the SLP how he was feeling or what he needed. During the session with the non-verbal students, the Physical Therapist and the Occupational Therapist had the student in wheel chairs moving in standers to stretch out their muscles and increase circulation. While the students were in standers, the SLP worked with them and their AAC devices.
Some of the ways are American Sign Language, Assistive Augmentative Communication (AAC) devices, gestures, and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to supplement the students’ communication skills. Since partnering with WCSI they have been able to introduce the iPad for communication. Two (2) of the participants in the Program have used an iPad for a means of communication the apps that they utilized were ProLoQue2 and TouchChat. Some of the students used their own form of sign language and it was very hard for them to interact with family, peers, and teachers. Most of the students using the iPad needed some sort of assistance from aids in the classroom to utilize the iPads for communication and
Most of my students’ have specific learning disabilities that relate to the basic psychological processes that involve, understanding or using spoken or written language, which may contribute to their ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell and to perform mathematical calculations.
Charlie is proof that through hard work and a strong support system, a child with Down Syndrome can succeed, and I will make this idea clear in my clinical practice. In addition, Claire mentioned the impact that a consistent SLP had on Charlie’s development. Currently, Charlie and his SLP (“writing teacher”) work on vocabulary words, keeping organized, and writing notes. I will use this knowledge to stress the importance of consistency for a child though development. In addition, Charlie described how he uses his electronic devices to aid in his learning. For example, Charlie uses Quizlet to study for school and learn new vocabulary. In my future clinical practice as an SLP, I will incorporate technology to enhance learning, and act as an aid to keep the child interested and
I could use a system like the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to improve the functional communication of a student with autism with visual schedules to communicate the student’s daily schedule and tasks using a set of pictures to communicate the needs of students. I have used pictures velcroed to a board for students to communicate their
In conclusion, people with disabilities is an important sector of our population and the rate is increasing in our days. In the United States the Federal Law of Special Education recommends and encourages to professionals to find and work with children with disabilities at early ages. It is imperative to implement early interventions to individuals with disabilities. One of these disabilities is the autism. As a special education teachers, we can use an augmentative intervention in order to help children with autism in their lack of communication skills. I would like to recommend the use of one of the most important interventions when we are talking about lacking in communication skills, PECS. Several studies have demonstrated that PECS is
A picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is a computerized medical technology that replaces the roles of conventional radiological film to digital form. PACS is used in a different department in the hospital, such as radiology, cardiology, and intensive care unit. PACS can be used for storing, sending, retrieving images and information from different places at different time. PACS is also important in the present for cardiologist who perform procedure using images
AAC devices are a way for students who do not or cannot verbally communicate or communicate in other ways like sign language, to speak through technology. AACs are techniques, strategies, and devices that allow children who cannot naturally speak or write; these AACs often come in a technological form (VOCA: voice-output communication aids), but they can also be low-tech devices like pictures, symbols, or message boards. Through AACs, the child can become more independent, allow them to become self-determined, and improve literacy through access to the general education curriculum.
This article explains how children with disabilities can utilize technology as a way to learn. Some of the technology equipment is known for assisting children with disabilities. Both high and low technology work for children in different stages of development. This also explains how some devices are not as simple to use as they may seem. Also in collaboration of the professional and child can make it easier when using technology, and it can help a child achieve success. Some of the equipment used in therapy sessions can be different than the ones used in the classroom (Mulligan, 2003). This means the child may have to adapt to the device in
The kids feel sure and they don 't apprehension disparagement or disappointment. At the point when compatibility is made between the kids and the practitioner, then the practitioner is capable to judge when the child is prepared to be taught new aptitudes.
Databases are great when you want to create a model of data such as numbers for figuring out how much you can spend on a new home when you are in the buying marketing, you can use excel to figure out how much you can spend and a monthly payment. You can also use a database to track of shipping components from a trade show that you are in charge of. You can use a database to organize the information about the components and equipment that will make a booth work and run properly at the trade show to.
PECO Energy offers various types of communication in our organization. The types of communication can range from emails to voice mails depending on the type of information communicated to the timeliness
“PACS” which stands for (picture archive communication system) is a healthcare technology for the short and long term storage, retrieval, management, distribution and presentation of medical images(rouse). This system has led the medical field to be more efficient with all of their images and organization of those images. Hospitals all around the world are using this technology and it 's only going to get greater usage and develop even better over time. PACS in general, is made up of several different components, these include imaging systems, such as MRI, CAT scan, and X-ray equipment, A secure network for patient information distribution, computers for viewing and processing images, and lastly archives for storage and retrieval of images and related documentation(PACS).
