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 children who have recently received a cochlear implant.
Auditory attention and memory can be expanded as the child’s skill level grows by creating longer cues.
Picture cards are included that show a Halloween character and item. The speaker puts those words into the pattern sentence ie, “I see a spider spinning his web.” The listener finds the spider and puts it on the matrix board at the intersection of spider and web.
Use of different carrier phrases can be created to target different verb tense or other grammatical structures of your choice.
Picture cards contain a character and an item.
Silly sentence cards are included for the child to identify the items in more complex structures.
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.
