  3. 3. The PECS, ABA, and TEACH Methods for Treating Children with Autism Autism spectrum disorder affects language and communication capabilities in children that have this condition. Onlookers may notice the children frequently repeating certain actions during normal play time and other symptoms, such as avoidance of eye contact. The cause of autism and the cure are not yet known, but ongoing research produces innovative methods for assisting children with autism to communicate better.
  4. 4. The PECS, ABA, and TEACH Methods for Treating Children with Autism Visual stimuli have proven helpful for many children with autism, leading to the development of the Picture Exchange Communications System (PECS), where imagebased communication is used. Image association is frequently used for children who are nonverbal. Educators trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) work one-onone with children to divide everyday tasks into trials, or small components. When tasks are completed successfully, the child is rewarded accordingly. The Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication of Handicapped Children (TEACH) program relies on the use of charts and diagrams. These organizational systems are thought to develop social, coping, and communication skills among children with autism.
