Pragmatic Organization Dynamic Display

Pragmatic Organization Dynamic Display (PODD )

Is a means of selecting and organising symbols so students with complex communication needs can communicate more easily The PODD communication system is taught through a focus on natural language exchanges, where visual language is modeled alongside verbal core words. 

A PODD can be used to communicate more effectively and to assist students in their understanding of other people’s spoken language. The adult language partners point to symbols representing key words while speaking. 

The consistent process and use of visual information promotes improved reception and expression.  At Currumbin Community Special School PODDS are used alongside other communication techniques such as Makaton, Key Word Signing and Auslan.
