The Puzzle Centre provides specialist education, support and therapy for children with autism and other communication difficulties. Their work includes helping children to develop their communication skills by using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). PECS teaches children to communicate using pictures, supporting those with limited language skills or providing an alternative method of communication for those unable to speak.
The Puzzle Centre were awarded a grant from Heart of Bucks to fund PECS training for three of their specialist learning assistants.
The Puzzle Centre works closely with a range of other organisations and community groups, including local pre-schools and nurseries. They also have over 30 volunteers in the local community involved in their work.
