A picture communication system is an alternative form of communication utilized by children with speech delays/impairments, as well as children on the autism spectrum, and children who struggle to convey their needs and wants.
Picture communication offers the child the ability to functionally communicate in a way that provides them with the opportunity to initiate social interactions.
There is vast data to support the use of picture exchange systems as a means of facilitating future verbal communication. Additionally, the exchange of pictures is often preferred over sign language because pictures are universal, whereas sign language can only be used as a form of communication between two parties who understand sign.
