What is the difference between visual support and PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System)?

PECS is a type of alternative form of communication in which the student uses the pictures to indicate his or her wants or needs.  Visual supports are pictures that accommodate students with daily routine, providing step-by-step pictures of what to expect throughout the day.  Visual supports can also be in the form of social stories, providing pictures of appropriate social interactions in various environments.
