Personal Communication Passports are a practical and person-centred way of supporting children, young people and adults who cannot easily speak for themselves. Passports are a way of pulling complex information together and presenting it in an easy-to-follow format. Passports aim to:
Present the person positively as an individual, not as a set of 'problems' or disabilities;
Provide a place for the person's own views and preferences to be recorded and drawn to the attention of others
Reflect the person's unique character, sense of humour etc.;
Describe the person's most effective means of communication and how others can best communicate with, and support the person;
Draw together information from past and present, and from different contexts, to help staff and conversation partners understand the person and have successful interactions;
Place equal value on the views of all who know the person well, as well as the views of the specialist professionals.

These Shared Resources are included as examples of what has been developed in particular settings to provide information for staff, including supply and non teaching staff.. They may have to be adapted to meet needs in other contexts.
We hope they give you ideas and inspiration to develop ones to suit your own school or pupil.
