This chapter describes the use of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECSTM) (Frost & Bondy, 2002) with a child with autism. It explains the PECS system and offers some examples of how this communication technology was used with the child (Thomas), his parents and teachers in his early learning at home and in his classroom. Through this case some of the strengths of this technology are identified, and Thomas' experiences are linked to research in the area. Some issues related to using such a program are considered.
