Come along to the 2-Day Introductory PODD Workshop for a must-have foundation in to PODD communication.

Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display (PODD) is a complete communication system for individuals who cannot meet all of their communication needs with speech. PODD enables genuine, autonomous communication in all daily environments for people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

Two Way Street has been helping people who use AAC, their families, friends and support networks for more than 10 years. Our highly trained Speech Pathologists work exclusively in AAC and our mission is to make our knowledge, skills and experience in AAC accessible to all.

This workshop is presented by Two Way Street Certified Practicing Speech Pathologists, Kate Munro and Melissa Riepsamen.

Kate has been providing training and support to people who use AAC and their communities for more than 12 years. As a valued member of the Two Way Street team, Kate is dedicated to empowering people through effective communication strategies.

Mel has been helping families and support teams to implement AAC systems and strategies across a range of settings for than 20 years. Mel’s work with CPEC includes mentoring junior therapists and running group programs for people of all ages who use AAC.

During the two workshop days you’ll learn language functions, navigation of different types of PODD, effective modelling and there’s plenty of time for hands-on practice and Q&A.
