This is a good book, but lacks in many areas of fully explaining how to teach PECS to children/students. A good introductory text to visual communication systems and behavior discussion but falls short of in-depth descriptions of how to fully utilize these tools.

This is a really helpful book that clearly outlines how to implement the use of PECS with students with autism. The book is clearly outlined, lessons are very to the point, and in general it just feels like an efficient but meaningful read.

The first chapters were basic and somewhat academic, discussing definitions of terms and going into a lot of detail about situations where PECS could be useful. However Chapter 7 "Advanced Lessons within PECS" and chapter 8 "Using Visual Strategies to enhance understanding" were valuable.
