PECS Phase III App
Based on research from the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the PECS™ protocol details a specific discrimination teaching strategy in Phase III. The PECS Phase III app is an invaluable tool that allows you to implement the teaching of Phase III of PECS™ and offers a novel approach to providing new opportunities for learners to practice discrimination techniques and strategies.
The app, designed to look just like a PECS™ communication book permits a teacher to practice picture discrimination with one or several learners within a single session. Touching the correct icon results 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 desire item or activity!
For teaching simple discrimination, the learner selects from an array involving the target picture versus a distracter picture. Both options allow you to move the pictures around on the page, between trials and to vary the number of pictures per trial from 2 to 12. A Correspondence Check™ can be tested by arranging two or more equally valued items and corresponding pictures with strategies from the Phase IIIB PECS™ protocol.
*App is not intended to replace your PECS communication book and/or to serve as a standalone communication system.

Developer Response ,
Dear A, thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sorry your experience didn't match your expectations. The PECS Phase III app was developed to teach and allow learners to practice discrimination techniques and strategies as detailed in Phases IIIa and IIIb of the Six Phases of PECS Protocol. The PECS Phase III app is not intended to replace a learners' PECS communication book or to serve as a standalone communication system. If you are looking for a functional app to accommodate your learner(s) while using the PECS Protocol on a speech generated device you may be interested in the PECS IV+ app. For more information about the PECS IV+ app please visit our website www.pecs.com.
