PODD is based on the paper templates for the Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display (PODD) communication book, created by speech pathologist Gayle Porter.
The PODD 60 complex syntax grids are designed for children and teenagers able to use whole words, symbols and word morphology to produce complex sentences to communicate a full range of purposes.
This grid set bears a resemblance in language and complexity to the two-page opening 90+ and the two-page opening with a side panel 100+ complex syntax PODD communication books.
A large vocabulary is available for individuals learning to spell whilst word prediction helps to develop the skill of spelling. Both are provided to increase efficiency of communication and to aid communication development.
Using predictably associated verb morphology groups, this grid set helps increase efficiency of communication. When any verb is selected within the grid, a self-closing grid automatically appears so the individual can select the form they require. This is the critical difference between PODD 60 expanded key word grid set and the PODD 60 Complex Syntax grid set.
