my daughter is almost three
she has little speech
she has therapists coming to the home
her speech therapist does not know sign and when i asked about PECS she admitted that she has made in the past, but "i spent so much time on them and then the kids lose them or the parents do not use" etc etc etc , complain, excuses, lazy
needless to say not thrilled with the speech therapist, but you get what you get in a small town and will only have her for two more months, than daughter is three and this program is over
so, i am going to try to make a pecs communication system on my own (with my sister helping) where do i start, have looked on internet for ideas
do i start with kitchen food items? everyday scheduled things we do?=ex. time for bed? do i make with velcro on felt board OR make with magnets? photographs or abstract colored pics?
any ideas appreciated, any things not to do

Also this is a bit pricey for PECS, but cheap for a communication system.
Definitely worth checking out. Cost is the price of a Nintendo DS lite ($129.00 + $99.00 per year).
