enhanced-6365-1399587538-5Looking for a simple way to use PECS (picture exchange card system) or photos to help your child communicate by making choices without having to be an arts and crafts expert or buy expensive laminating supplies/velcro/photo pages?  Take any size egg carton, cut the lid off (if there is a lid), turn it upside down and cut small slits in the bottom of each egg receptacle – just small enough to fit a photo or “playing card size”.  Use the slits to place PECS or photos in a upright position and allow your child to make choices about their lives either visually or via fine motor skills (pointing, taking, or grasping).  Use smaller count egg cartons if just starting out with choice making so as not to overwhelm the child with too many choices.  p.s. Use an old deck of playing cards to mount photos or PECS.
