PECS IV+ is the solution for transitioning from PECS to high-tech AAC. For learners who have mastered Phases I through IV of the Picture Exchange Communication System using traditional PECS books, PECS IV+ is the high-tech next step! From Pyramid Educational Consultants, the developers of the evidence-based and world-renowned PECS, PECS IV+ allows users to construct a multi-picture Sentence Strip via a dedicated Sentence Starter page and up to 20 digital PECS book pages for the in-app voice to speak.

Functional communication training should begin with a traditional PECS Communication Book. Research has shown that most learners can learn Phases I through IV of the low-tech PECS Communication protocol within 3- to 9-months.Go to www.pecs.com for more information about PECS.To view the PECS IV+ demo video or for more information about PECS IV+ visit www.pecs.com/PECSIV.
