Excellent resource! With the increase of young adults in our service and access to 'special'/mainstream education this tool will help continue to develop communication skills already established.

This should be part of every parent's library if using PECS. Has templates at the back for IEP, IPs. Excellent if you strike problems. Also has critical communication stages asking for help, how to wait etc.

Did not get the opportunity to read and take notes on the whole thing but got the early phases done as they - according to the research you sent me - were the most useful phases.
