Description

The Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display (PODD) approach assists people with complex communication needs to learn to understand and express language and to enable autonomous communication. It 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

Learning Outcomes:

This workshop aims to assist participants to understand the theory and practice related to PODD communication systems. It will provide information about the evidence base for aided language stimulation, a strategy to assist language learning for augmentative and alternative communication. This workshop provides both theory and hands on practice so participants can develop their confidence in understanding and implementing PODD communication systems.

Participants will:

- Reflect on current practice for teaching communication skills

- Be aware of research supporting aided language stimulation

- Be familiar with PODD communication books

- Understand key features of PODD communication systems

- Use PODD communication books for frequently used messages

- Be aware of PODD resources - both paper-based and page-sets for speech generating communication devices and tablets

- Learn to model communication using PODD communication systems

- Feel confident implementing PODD communication books, so communication happens across the day, anywhere and at any time.

Target audience:

This workshop will be of interest to speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and teachers, support people and families of individuals who have complex communication needs.

Presenter:

Yvette Theodorsen, founder of Interactive Speech Pathology, has focussed most of her 14 years as a speech pathologist working in the area of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). She is passionate about every person having a voice, no matter how significant their challenges may be.
Yvette has implemented PODD communication books with people from 9 months to 46 years of age, believing that nobody is too young or too old to begin with AAC. She has supported their communication partners in many different settings, including home, mainstream and special education environments, child care and in other community programs.
Yvette has worked in programs that provide holistic intervention and understands the importance of considering the 'whole person' when developing their communication skills.
