Autism Continued from page 46 in specific and proven ways to fa- cilitate learning. One of the tech- niques used is known as PECS (Picture Exchange Communica- tion System). Developed by Lori Frost and Andrew Bondy, this sys- tem provides children with an ef- fective and functional method of communication. Using picture symbols, children learn to make requests and to construct sen- tences. Many children learn to ask for what they need within a few days of the initiation training and are taught the value of com- municating their wants and needs to others. Use of the PECS Sys- tem often leads to functional lan- guage skills and improved social communication.

It is indeed a very special school, thanks to the dedi- cation of its teachers, aids, psy- chologists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, social workers, nurses and all other of- rice and support personnel. When you see them on one of their com- munity outings, give them a smile and wave of encouragement and a thanks for a job well done.
