Designed for use in any setting, PECS IV+ allows users to construct a multi-picture Sentence Strip via a dedicated Sentence Starter page pulling from up to 20 digital PECS Book pages for the in-app voice to speak.

PECS Phase III (Available exclusively for iPad® and iPad™ mini users)

The PECS Phase III App, designed to look just like a PECS communication book is an invaluable tool for teaching picture discrimination. This app is not intended to replace the learner's PECS communication book, but rather to serve as an aid to practice discrimination techniques and strategies with one or several learners within a single lesson. Touching the correct icon will result in immediate visual and auditory feedback from the device in a manner far quicker than a teacher could react. If the learner touches an incorrect icon, there is no significant feedback. A correct picture selection results in access to a desired item or activity!

Languages Available: English

iHear PECS: Animals™ (Available exclusively for iPad® and iPad™ mini users)

Kids love animals and the variety of sounds they make. This PECS® Activity App is for students who are learning to comment in Phase VI of PECS®. I Hear PECS®: Animals™ includes two different sound tracks for 12 familiar animals, a PECS® Activity Board™, 3 Pics for PECS™ Sentence Starter™ images and 12 Pics for PECS™ animal images. Customize the Activity Board™ with 1 to 3 Sentence Starters™ and 1 to 12 animal images to teach responsive and spontaneous commenting and requesting. Tap the Play icon to randomly play a selected animal sound. Tap the Replay button to play the same animal sound again. The student drags and drops Pics for PECS™ icons to the Sentence Strip™ to comment on or request the animal sound and then taps each picture to “speak” the sentence. If the student requests an animal sound, the animal sound plays as a reward.

Working4™

Everybody likes a visual reinforcement system. Using this app, you can let someone know what he’s working for, how much work he needs to do, and how close he is to earning a reward for that work. You can use this for lessons in school, chores at home, getting your children to eat their vegetables, and much more! Start the app by selecting the number of tokens (1-5) your student must earn. Then set up your student's reinforcer choice board by selecting 1-6 items from our pre-loaded symbol library or your own photo library. To delete a picture from the teacher choice screen just press down on an image for 5 seconds. Show the choice board to your student to select what to work for and then begin your lesson. Each time a student earns a token, slide a token to the empty dot. Once the student has earned all of his tokens, push the "cash in" button to show your student what he's earned! The token board resets to start the next deal or you can create a new choice board for your student to select a new reinforcer.

Working4™ is now available in English, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. To enable Spanish please make sure your Apple device is set up to use Español as its main language via Settings > General > Language & Region > iPad Language. To enable Brazilian Portuguese please make sure your Apple device is set to use Portuguese as its main language via Settings > General > Language & Region > iPad Language. To enable Japanese set your language to Japanese on your device via Settings > General > Language & Region > iPad Language.

R+Remind™

A tool to help educators remember to reinforce good behavior! With R+Remind, you choose an interval and the app does the work! A tone unique to each interval sounds at a variable rate so that you can pause in what you're doing and reinforce a new behavior, the lack of a targeted behavior, or even an existing behavior. Perfect in busy classrooms to remind all staff to catch someone being good!
