Overview

Now that we’ve assessed our student’s communication strategies and identified appropriate IEP goals, we are ready to identify effective teaching strategies.  The Communication Matrix Community of Practice is an online virtual community developed to share information about the Communication Matrix and find resources to progress from assessment to intervention.  In this third and final session of the three-part webinar series, we will provide an overview of the use of the Communication Matrix Community of Practice and its features. We will also demonstrate ways that information, resources and data can be found on the Community site to help identify activities and strategies that you can use to support children with complex communication needs.

Learning Objectives

  3. Participants will be able to use the Communication Matrix Community of Practice site to locate research-based information that applies to a specific student.
