Communication Passports These templates can be used by anyone who wants to help someone create a one page Communication Passport. Our team of speech-language therapists at Talking Trouble Aotearoa NZ often create these with a person so they can have their say about what helps/gets in the way of communicating, and gives a quick and easy guide for others to know how to help. They can choose who needs to see the Communication Passport and what goes in it. Weve known passports to be given to people before important meetings so they can understand what to do to help, or when transitioning to new places or services. The Communication Passport can be updated when new information comes to light or things change. We sometimes use a Talking Mat first to help someone reflect on their own communication skills, and what theyd like people to do to support their communication. Sometimes we just open a blank document and start a list about things that are annoying and things that help. There isnt one way to do these. They can be personalised with colour, decoration and detail, and can be any size and can be laminated. We often make them in Powerpoint, but they can be handwritten or typed. Multiple copies can be useful so everyone who needs the information can get a copy. We like to try to have the persons own words included. Anyone can help someone put together a Communication Passport it doesnt have to be a speech-language therapist. The example passports weve included here have had all identifying information has been removed or changed. You are welcome to use our templates and wed love to know how you use them and what templates work best in your setting. You can find other materials you might find handy on our website under resources.
