Help me become PECS Certified

Raised by 1 person in 7 months
My name is Mickey and I am an Autism mom. Raylan is my 3.5 year old nonverbal son. He has taught our family that there is so much more to communication than just words and if you listen with your heart and not your ears  you will enter a world that most people only dream of.

Raylan never utters a word, but he will tell you everything you need to know if only you open your heart.

He uses a communication system called PECS.  https://pecsusa.com/pecs/

PECS has opened doors that were locked and chained. Within a year of Raylan learning to use PECS system we have seen his personality bloom. He enjoys exchanging and communicating. PECS has brought a light out in me as his mama as well. I long to help families near me learn how to use PECS. I desire to teach families how to open those doors that are locked deep inside their children. 

I wish to start training to be a PECS Implementer. By becoming a PECS Implementer I would learn the proper way to use PECS and to teach the use of PECS. This will help my community significantly because currently there is no training for PECS near us. We have a very limited amount of speech therapist in the early intervention program and local therapy groups, that have the resources and the knowledge to correctly teach PECS.

The money raised will be used to achieve the following, I also noted the exact date of the training:

PECS Level 1 Certified Implementer (PCI-1) February 25 - 26, 2019
Parent: $299.00

PECS Level 2 Certified Implementer (PCI-2)   May 16 - 17, 2019
Parent: $299.00



Please help me with this amazing opportunity!

PECS Workshop is next week. I am praying I can attend. If not I will attend in December.

Birth to 5 is a crucial time frame for children with Autism, he will be 4 in December. Please help me learn more so I can help him and other families like ours. I am really trying to learn how to best help Raylan.

Can you imagine how it feels to not be able to tell anyone around you what you need? how you feel? I know I can't even begin to imagine. I know the frustration of not being able to help my baby or understand what he needs. I know the hurt of not knowing if he understands when I tell him I love him. Please share and help me help him.
