PECS training, Sydney: October 2011 and 2012 listings

October is a busy month - we have Down Syndrome Awareness Week coinciding with Carers' Week (next week) and the whole month has been declared  Augmentative and Alternative Communication Month - this link includes the Coffee Shop Communication Challenge and other AAC awareness activities.

A Down Syndrome  NSW member has recently attended a Picture Exchange Communication System workshop with Pyramid Educational Consulting, and highly recommends it. PECS is a well established alternative communication option for people with autism and related disorders, including some people with Down syndrome.

The next Pyramid PECS Basics Training session in Sydney is on 27th - 28th October.  Details here.

Listings for all coming events, into 2012 are here.
