A matrix board can be a versatile therapy activity and easily adapted to the needs of individual students. Students learn to converge an intersection from vertical and horizontal points. There are opportunities for both receptive and expressive practice.
It’s an optimal closed set structured listening task for preschoolers and school aged children who have recently received a cochlear implant.
Auditory memory with basic vocabulary can be expanded as the child’s skill level grows. Beginning with a color + vehicle (red airplane) with options to increase the length (a red airplane and a blue truck).
More complex structures can be easily incorporated by adding a name (ie, Sam rode a blue helicopter) or by using the key words in a short simple story.
This can also be printed in duplicate and used as a barrier game or battleship type guessing game using the same type of grammatical structures.
This product contains:
colored matrix board
black and white larger cards (which can be colored for the younger child who needs to see the actual blue car or red airplane)
