One of the most important tools to assist in communication with young children with Autism or other Behavioral Health Disorders is the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). This system has been highly successful with regard to the development of functional communication skills. The goal of PECS is spontaneous and functional communication. One very important place for effective spontaneous and functional communication is on an elementary school playground.
Effective communication across the spectrum of the affected children, teachers and other children helps reduce stress, enhance enjoyment and increase safety. One of the most important signs that your elementary school can invest in is are PECS Signs for the playground and other locations of high traffic and interaction.
A PECS elementary school playground sign is an instrumental tool for creating an environment where all children can thrive regardless of mental health challenges. The sign includes pictures that enhance communication in several areas including but not limited to identifying who, what, where , feelings, expressions of gratitude or displeasure, and activities. The ease that these signs can be customized maximizes enhanced communication for your specific environment.
