The P.O.D.D. System (Pragmatic Organization Dynamic Display) is a paper-based multiple communication board system designed by Gayle Porter. The P.O.D.D. provides a series of communication books that grow with the language abilities of the student. It integrates the pragmatic function of communication within the system. This webinar will provide an overview of the P.O.D.D., navigation of the different layouts and how to teach students to use the P.O.D.D. to communicate for a variety of pragmatic reasons.
