PODD Communication Books
2 or 3 Day Official Introductory Workshop w/ Linda Burkhart
Need help using AAC in your classroom/speech room?
Children who are nonspeaking or have only limited speech, in addition to other challenges, often struggle to interact and communicate. This may include children who have physical disabilities, multiple disabilities, sensory processing challenges, limited social interaction skills, and/or a range of cognitive limitations and learning difficulties.
This two (+ third day option) day course will demonstrate the use of a Pragmatic Organization Dynamic Display (PODD) approach developed by Gayle Porter. Generic templates for multi-page “light tech” communication books have been carefully designed to support genuine communication for a variety of functions throughout the day. These templates may be customized for a range of access methods and other individual needs.
Come learn strategies for teaching and using PODD with children and their communication partners. Videos and case examples will be shared. Participants will have an opportunity for hands-on practice with PODD Communication books.
Seating is limited to 50 so register now! TSHA CEUs provided.
Door prizes for public school staff include copies of the PODD/CD set ($300 value)
