You’ll gain an in-depth insight into PODD communication systems and a clear understanding of implementing and using PODD for efficient and successful communication. We share strategies to support the design, production and implementation of PODD communication systems to enable genuine communication for a variety of functions in all daily environments.

PODD Workshops cover:

  • Creative and practical solutions shared through videos, discussion and case examples
  • Features of a PODD communication system including vocabulary organisation, layout, design, range of access strategies and customisation for individual requirements
  • Challenges faced when creating communication systems
  • Teaching and learning strategies for implementing PODD communication systems
  • Hands-on supported practice using supplied PODD communication books (no need to bring your own!)

“Being able to say what I want to say,
to whoever I want to say it to,
whenever I want to say it.”

Gayle Porter, Developer of PODD
