EPECS Lite is a communication aid for children of any age who have a Statement of Educational Needs (SEN).  It is based on the Picture Exchange Communcation System (PECSTM) developed by Pyramid Educational Consultants Inc.  Any child who is already used to using this system can use EPECS Lite instantly.  The software will display the word as they press the symbol and also speak the word.  Once the sentence has been completed, there is also the option of having the software speak the sentence in it's entirety.
The software will run on any standard PC running Microsoft XPTM, VistaTM or WindowsTM 7.  For pupils who lack the dexterity to use a mouse, a touch screen monitor or smartboard may be used.
A more advanced version of this software is currently under development.  This software will offer a fixed tab of the most commonly used "CORE" words as standard.  All subsequent tabs and words can then be custom selected so the software can be tailored, at the time, to the activity the child is going to be undertaking.  An announcement will be made on this site when the software is available.
