Indigo Non-Electronic Communication Aids Service: Fully Waterproof PODD Books

1 March 2022

Indigo's team of Speech Pathologists and Allied Health Assistant work with individuals to develop and customise a range of non-electronic communication aids specific to their needs.

Non-electronic communication aids are tools that can assist someone who uses non-verbal or limited verbal communication to express and understand language.

They are one type of assistive technology called Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

Five examples of non-electronic communication devices on a deskPODD books are a comprehensive communication system that can be used in an individual's day-to-day life. A plus for PODD books is their versatility of use in places where electronic systems can't be used such as the shower or swimming pool.

To make our PODD books fully waterproof rather than the current shower proof options available, our industrious allied health assistant researched and located waterproof paper and labels online which have been fully tested as100% waterproof.

Indigo's PODD books can now be fully submerged in water (if needed) making them safe for the beach, swimming lessons and messy play.

NDIS funding can be utilised to fund the time and materials required for our allied health assistant to create and customise a waterproof PODD book.
