Ganz, J. & Simpson, R. (2004). Effects on communicative requesting and speech development of the Picture Exchange Communication System in children with characteristics of autism.

Journal of Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 34, 395‐409.
Abstract: Few studies on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems have addressed the potential for such systems to impact word utterances in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is an AAC system designed specifically to minimize difficulties with communication skills experienced by individuals with ASD. Lee Mas...

Augmentative and Alternative Communication, 24, 89‐99.
Abstract: Nonverbal individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often require the use of picture based, aided augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. Such systems are used widely, but little research has investigated the generalization of these devices to a variety of communicative partners and under a variety of conditions. Lee Mas...

Ganz, J., Simpson, R. & Corbin‐Newsome, J. (2008). The impact of the Picture Exchange Communication System on requesting and speech development in preschoolers with autism spectrum disorders and similar characteristics.

Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2, 157–169.
Abstract: By definition children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) experience difficulty understanding and using language. Accordingly, visual and picture‐based strategies such as the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) show promise in ameliorating speech and language deficits. Lee Mas...

Ganz, J., Simpson, R. & Lund, E. (2012). The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS): A Promising Method for Improving Communication Skills of Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 47, 176–186.
Abstract: Children and youth with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental delays frequently experience deficits in functional communication. Identifying and using suitable communication enhancement and augmentative and alternative communication supports is essential to achievement of positive outcomes for these learners. Lee Mas...

This is particularly true for individuals whose disability significantly impacts their language development. Without functional communication, these individuals often engage in severe behavior, have reduced self-determination, and experience diminished quality of life. Accordingly, researchers in special education and related fields have sought ways to improve the communication skills of learners with autism who need specialized language and communication interventions.
