Rachel’s Kids House of Hope is proud to offer a service in creating PECS (Picture Exchange Communication Systems) for families, professionals and anyone looking to apply PECS as a daily form of augmentative and/or alternative form of communication. While the system is commonly used as a communication aid for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), it has been used with a wide variety of learners, from preschoolers to adults, who have various communicative, cognitive, and physical impairments, including Cerebral Palsy, Blindness, and Deafness. PECS are utilized daily by many families and professionals as a comprehensive tool to create and implement routine such as daily eating schedules, bath routines, washing hands, “Now-Then-Later”, Sequential PECs, anxiety kits, good choice reinforcement sticker systems, potty training, visiting the doctor or dentist and more. Our team can help build these for your child or student based on their specific needs, interests and routines. PECS can be provided in French and English. To see full inventory of PECS please go to our Facebook.
We are excited to share with you Rachel’s Kids “Bracelets for Change”. The concept behind “Bracelets for Change” is to associate beautiful colourful beaded precious stone bracelets with a specific cause, offering families in rural areas of Sri Lanka prospective employment in assembling them for us. The proceeds of “Bracelets for Change” are distributed to the various needs of what each bracelet represents. Water filtration systems, Farming, Orphanages, Shoes and autism are only a few causes Bracelets for Change support through purchase. We encourage you to peruse our photos and for more information on the bracelets please visit our Facebook Page.
