PECS Products Now Available in Spanish!
We are pleased to announce that we are now offering the PECS 151 in Spanish!
This set of pictures is a collection of some of the most commonly used pictures for PECS. We compiled this list over several years by tracking the picture vocabulary development of hundreds of new PECS users. Our generic, non-specific pictures are perfect for combining with attributes for precise requests or comments. To save you valuable time, these full color pictures are printed on rigid paper and are laminated for added durability! VELCRO® Brand loop VELCOINS® are included to apply to the back of your pictures. "Imágenes de color para la comunicación visual."
