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 person’s name, a stamp from a country and a vehicle. The speaker puts those words into the pattern sentence ie, “Sam took a boat to Thailand”. The listener finds the boat and puts in on the matrix board at the intersection of Sam and Thailand.
Use of different carrier phrases can be created to target different verb tense or other grammatical structures of your choice.
Some of the picture cards include 2 names so there is more to remember.
More complex structures can be easily incorporated 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.
