Communication Passports – Part 2 (Resources)
A communication passport is mainly aimed at non-verbal PMLD learners, but it could also be used with learners who are autistic. There are lots of free resources available online to help you create a communication passport.
CALL Scotland provides a series of freely downloadable templates in Microsoft PowerPoint on their website: https://www.communicationpassports.org.uk/home/
The ‘Call Centre’ also offers downloadable templates for Microsoft Word that make a single sheet communication passport, which may be preferable for some of our learners.
There is also a downloadable book version for Microsoft word pictured below.
Also, on the ‘CALL Centre’ website, you will find the work of Angela Crocker, a speech and language therapist in Belfast. She has developed a version of a communication passport that may be seen as more appropriate for adults. She calls them ‘Personalised Placemats’.
Information about these is detailed on the website above. One of my favourite sections of the Call Centre website is the special passports section. Sheffield kids have a website which is linked from the CALL Centre or available in the following link. They offer over 50 themed templates for single-page communication passports, which have fun graphics ranging from Batman, Sponge Bob, Dr. Who, Toy Story, Harry Potter, and lots more.
