Based on the Picture Exchange Communications System (PECS) which uses photos that are velcroed together to make phrases and sentences, the electronic adaptation of the system is more portable. The touch-screen of the iPhone is essential as it mimics the PECS system.
The application is being trialled in Ireland. Local autism peak body Aspect says that it would probably like to trial the application, but stresses that it complements the PECS system, rather than replacing it. For more information on the application, see the Sydney Morning Herald website.
Other communications solutions for people with Autism, include a special monthly cinema screening program in AMC cinemas in the US.
