Human communication is an exchange of feelings and needs between two or more people, either carried out by oral, sign, graphic and/or written languages. Therefore, this study aimed to verify the effects of the implementation of the Picture Exchange Communication System. (PECS-adapted) for a student with cerebral palsy. The research was carried out in a special education school, in a small town in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. One non-speaking student with cerebral palsy participated in the research, his teacher and his parents. The parents and the teacher were guided in using the system at home and at school, and this instrumentalizing the most immediate partners. Data collection lasted about seven months. During the research, it was observed that the participant increased his communication skills, according to his needs, and the teacher and the parents understood the importance of using the alternative communication system for teaching and learning.
