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 communication book 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.

Learning Outcomes
Participants will be able to:

- Describe the challenges faced by professionals creating communication systems in terms of vocabulary organisation, layout, design, range of access startegies and customising for individual requirements

- Discuss the features of a PODD communication system in terms of vocabulary organisation, layout, design, range of access strategies and customising for individual requirements

- Use PODD generic template resources to produce customised communication books

- Discuss the teaching and learning strategies for implementing PODD communication systems with students and team members

- Teach children and partners to use PODD communication books in daily environments.

Target audience
This workshop will be of interest to speech pathologists, occupational therapists, teachers and parents of individuals who have complex communication needs. Family members and support people of someone using PODD may also be interested to attend this workshop. If you are considering high tech PODD, this training would also be beneficial to develop your understanding about PODD features, organisation and teaching and learning strategies.
