How to EASILY Create Your OWN PECS-Inspired System!



Do you have a child with autism or that is non-verbal?


If so, this DIY is perfect for you! This system can help your child find the words they need to communicate. It's similar to systems I've used in my own classrooms and now I use it at home. Sometimes a simple visual can help make life easier. You won't regret trying this out!


Watch the video instructions on how to create these cards yourself! They're easy enough that anyone could do them, but also customizable for any individual needs your family might have.


And if you don't want to go through all the work of designing these cards yourself,

I want to make it VERY clear that I am not a certified therapist or expert on non-verbal Autism. I do have years of training in Child Development and am a former Early Childhood teacher, however. This DIY is similar to systems I have used in my own classrooms, and now I use it at home! If your child is struggling to find the words, I hope this can help. Sometimes a simple visual can help to make leaps and bounds in communication with your child, and help bridge the gap.

I am with you, and we got this.
