Do you need somethings structured for listening comprehension? This resource will work at a variety of levels!
This resource includes a printable matrix for giving directions to your student to follow in order to make their matrix match yours. There are 40 pre-made matrices included, which are broken down into 4 different levels (3, 4, 5, and 6 critical elements).
You can also make your own matrices to correspond to your student's individual goals/skill level (by adding more elements or concepts of time/sequence, position, size, or quantity). So many options! Additionally, you can integrate expressive language by switching "jobs" and letting the student be the “teacher” by giving you the directions. Kids love this! This is also a great activity for mixed groups.
This activity has so many possible uses, including:
★Critical element directions for students with hearing loss or auditory processing difficulties
★Following multi-step directions
★Using descriptive language
★Increasing length of utterance
★Understanding and using concepts of color, size, quantity, position, time/sequence, etc.
★Carry-over of articulation goals into structured conversation
