PODD is a tool and “all the time” strategy for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) which is a way to enrich the language and learning environment for individuals with complex communication needs (CCN) and provide more opportunity to express themselves.

In a collaborative effort to bring this resource to you, Gompers, Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD), Southwest Human Development (SWHD) and AzTAP are organizing a 1-day and a 2-day training for therapists, teachers, caregivers, para-educators, parents and augmentative communication partners.
