Imagine being thirsty and unable to ask for a drink, or being hungry and unable to ask for food. For many children with severe communication difficulties, such as autism, this is a reality.

Pyramid Educational Trust is a registered charity set up to support people with autism and communication difficulties to learn to communicate through a simple yet effective system called the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Many parents and teachers have found the use of PECS has built up children’s confidence and independence and has led in some instances to reading, speech and mainstream education.

The Pyramid Educational Trust was formed to raise funds to support those who would benefit from PECS and the Pyramid Approach to Education. The Trust aims, in particular, to support parents and carers to receive training and support in implement PECS and the Pyramid Approach to Education.
