I would love to see greater use of images to help simplify calls to action in written communication. Imagine a universal visual language, perhaps an image and a single word so that on receipt of a letter instantly you know why you have received the letter and if it requires any action. Simple communication like this would help the recipient of the letter and the sender would also see greater responses.
The mind map above shows a few basic ideas – I am sure that more companies could incorporate a few simple visual cues; many already do so and it is refreshing to see.
The same principles could be applied to the design of leaflets and instruction sheets and much more.
Potentially there could be generic images for each instruction which are used right across all niche fields and industries like the many online images and icons we recognise. I hope you enjoy viewing my Mind Maps – there are hundreds more planned here at the Mind Map Inspiration Blog plus ongoing creativity and drawing tips. Also available: E-Books designed to help you create stylish and artistic mind maps of your own.
If you know someone who could benefit from this post and others here at the Mind Map Inspiration Blog please share with them. PODD (or Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display) communication books were developed in Australia by Gayle Porter, originally for children with cerebral palsy.
Hey, I’m reading this a bit late so hopefully somebody with some ideas will read this! How do you start encouraging a nine year old pupil with ASD and ADHD (whose parents do not want to allow him medication) to use PODD sheets for school activities, homes, sessions etc.


PrAACtical AAC supports a community of professionals and families who are determined to improve the communication and literacy abilities of people with significant communication difficulties.
As their use becomes more widespread throughout the world, practitioners are considering the benefits of using them with other clinical populations.
Like you we have experimented with using the books with children with ASD but the challenge schools face is keeping such a large book near enough to the most active children to be able to reach for it when they are engaging in an activity. The pupil was born in Uganda, apparently went to school there but moved from school to school, came to England five years ago but never been to school in England. It was founded in 2011 by two SLP professors, Carole Zangari and the late Robin Parker, around a shared passion for AAC. She previously worked in a primary school for children with ASD, where PODD and Aided Language Displays were introduced as part of a school wide approach in order to enhance the communication-friendly environment for all pupils. Their structured organisation and emphasis on visual communication means that they are also a valuable tool for developing the communication of those with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (Porter & Cafiero, 2009).
The pupil has English as a second language (but parents do not speak it at home), never been in an English school, is completely non verbal and does not understand English language, has no concept of numbers, letters or symbols or what they represent? In this post, she shares how they used PODD books and aided language input to build the students’ communication skills.
It is important that children are not forced to use, or even to look at the displays, but that any attempt to use the symbols in a communicative manner was responded to in a positive way.
This reduces the number of page turns which are needed, and therefore increases the speed and efficiency of communication.
The biggest challenge when introducing PODD books into classrooms within the school was ‘creating the habit’ among adults in the school.


This included the necessity of a child having their PODD book with them at all times, and for staff to use Aided Language to support all of their messages, both when teaching and when talking informally to a child.
As pupils became more familiar with, and dependent on their PODD books being their ‘voice,’ this difficulty lessened, as many children took responsibility for their own books (and often became upset if they were forgotten!) and staff saw the benefits of their efforts.
To lessen the enormity of using a whole book, new users were recommended to focus on familiarising themselves with a different pathway each week, and to focus initially on using on the book consistently to communicate a handful of messages, rather than trying to navigate to the vocabulary for every single thing they wanted to say. A year after Aided Language Displays and PODD books were introduced, wide ranging benefits were seen to the children beyond just supporting their expressive communication. Staff and parents fed back that their use had far reaching effects on pupils’ behaviour, engagement within classes and understanding of information. One parent reported that ‘I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in his speech [talking] and I didn’t think I’d see that.
He’s calmer now, not so frustrated and when he uses the book, when he points to the pictures to tell you, he smiles, ‘cos he knows he’s told you.
He doesn’t get so anxious now, definitely.’  Staff also became more aware of pupils’ capabilities, as nonverbal children were given a structured way to participate and to show their understanding within lessons, such as through labelling shapes, answering questions in literacy and expressing their opinions. Staff were also made to rethink some of their lesson plans, as occasionally pupils used their new-found communication techniques to tell us, ‘I don’t like it, it’s boring’!
