Beyond Autism Pecs Pictures/Icons Pages
Also check out the Communication, Assistive Technology and Augmentive Communication page as there are tons of great sites there also.
I have tried to make a variety of pictures for kids at different levels. The "photo" ones of food are getting to be more of common name brands and I have tried to give you choices in brands when I can for the ones the kids may be familiar with in your house.
"On-line" Grocery stores are a great source of pictures for name brand foods.

For those of you that don't have easy access to laminating your pictures I remember what the school did last year when they needed a pecs in a hurry that they did not have - glue your picture/pictures to index cards and use clear contact paper to protect and strengthen them.

When you print the pictures I would advise making sure that you have your printer set on "best quality".

You can always copy/cut/paste these pictures and manipulate them in your own word processing/drawing programs to try to make them fit your needs.

I bought a roll of self adhesive magnets and put a piece on the back of each pec and put them on the side of my refrigerator. Works great! My son will stand their and scan the pictures for what he wants and bring it to us. Of course the frig is kind of messy looking but...

These symbols/pictures are also highly effective using them for a "schedule" system or for a "choice board" when using a token system. In my "personal opinion" I recommend the book " ("Activity Schedules for Children with Autism: Teaching Independent Behavior."Activity schedules enable children with autism to accomplish activities with greatly reduced adult supervision. An activity schedule is a set of pictures or words that cues a child to engage in a sequence of activities. When the activities are mastered, the children are more self directed and purposeful in their home, school and leisure activities. In this book, parents and professionals will find detailed instructions to help them create schedules and to teach children to use them. 120 pages, Soft Cover, 1999, by Lynn E.

Workstation Photos

An Easy Way To Make Pictures

Most computers have a "photo" or "take picture" function (on the MAC it is control-shift-three) and it will take a picture of whatever is on your screen. You can then take the "picture" you took and manipulate / resize / add text or whatever in your graphics program. You can do this with any favorite computer programs that are running, take "pictures" of favorite cartoon characters on web sites, toys or games at your favorite toy web site such as or or is a GREAT way to get pictures for a communication system. Then if you have Claris Works or Microsoft Word or whatever you use for drawing and painting you can copy - paste them with several pictures to a document and print it out! Voila!
