Event description

Description

The Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display (PODD) approach provides strategies to support the design, production and implementation of communication systems to enable genuine communication for a variety of functions in all daily environments. PODD includes strategies to minimise some of the common difficulties associated with the use of multi-level communication books including:

  • Supporting the child and communication partners to efficiently move between levels (pages) to locate vocabulary they require.
  • Speed to access vocabulary to produce messages.
  • Quicker access to predictable messages and access to a broad range of vocabulary for spontaneous, unpredicted messages.

The PODD resource provides generic templates which can be customised to suit individual requirements. Generic templates can be used for trial to enable more informed system development and then be customised to suit individualised needs. PODD can be used to create a wide range of communication books to suit varying communication, language, sensory and physical access requirements. Creative and practical solutions will be demonstrated through videos and case examples. Participants will have the opportunity for hands on supported practice using PODD communication books. Presenters : Helen Tainsh and Iona Rutherford (Senior Speech Pathologists)
