The company was founded in 1992 by Andy Bondy, PhD., and Lori Frost, MS, CCC-SLP, developers of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and the Pyramid Approach to Education. They developed these practices with a focus on functional communication, learning, and designing teaching strategies to support learners in their everyday environments and activities. As the company expanded across the United States and into other countries, more and more learners of all ages, along with their families, teachers, and support teams, benefited and continue to benefit from PECS and the Pyramid Approach.
Pyramid Educational Consultants is the worldwide source for both the Pyramid Approach to Education and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Our goal is to provide the highest quality of training, consultation and support to parents, caregivers and professionals in the field of autism and developmental disabilities. Using functional, practical and evidence based interventions, our aim is to teach individuals how to effectively communicate, function independently and be productive in their schools, home, place of employment and community.
We know you are dedicated to helping your learner make the best life for him or herself, and we would like to support you in this process.

Who We Help
Children & Adults
When we consult with individuals, we take a unique approach each time, first listening to what they want to achieve and then implementing the plan that works best for their team. We can meet you in whatever location and through whatever mode works best for you, at home, school, or a treatment center, online via live remote, or through phone or video consultation.
Our consultants work with schools and facilities to support them in using our systems to build better learning environments. Giving each student the functional skills they need to navigate their everyday life fosters an inclusive, interactive learning environment in which everyone is supported in achieving their potential. We can help you organize your classroom and curriculum using the Pyramid Approach, assist your team in creating and working towards shared goals, and collaborate to overcome obstacles as your learners develop their skills.
Parents attending our trainings are empowered to use our methods through practical advice, demonstration, and role-playing. Our consultants will lead you through the theoretical foundations and prepare you to use these tools and strategies with your child right away. We’re always happy to provide guidance as you move forward, answering your questions and helping you to approach challenges as they arise.
