are a large collection (over 1300) of realistic picture exchange
communication symbols. They are designed to assist children with autism
and communication difficulties who use the picture exchange communication
One of the benefits associated with the ability to use a picture exchange system is lowered frustration, which in turn often results in a decline in many of the behavioral problems associated with autism.
Many children have difficulty interpreting generic symbols and require pecs to look like actual objects. This usually leads to the use of photographs. Again this can cause difficulties, because many children become distracted by the background and are not able to distinguish which object is the actual symbol.
Toy Pecs will benefit children who face this difficulty. They will relate easier to a clear picture of the toy. Once communication is established, the road to learning begins.
With over 1300 realistic boxed pictures, most toys found in homes, daycare centers and elementary classes are included in this package.
Toy Pecs can be downloaded in zip format, so you can start making your customized pages right away. They come in jpeg format and have been made large (6 inches), so you can choose the size appropriate for your child. All instructions are included in the package.

Because Toy Pecs come in both formats, labeled and unlabeled, instructions are included for you to label your pecs to make them suitable for your child. This is especially useful for children who speak a different language than English. They also are a great learning tool for foreign language students.
