Communication Matrix

Taken from the back of the presentation room, workshop attendees listen to the presenter. Attendees look at a slide of a parent and child.Recently, the Colorado Department of Education brought presenter, Phil Schweigert, to CSDB, for a Communication Matrix workshop. 90 Southern Colorado service providers, who serve students who have vision loss, hearing loss or both, learned how to use the communication matrix for children who are not yet using formal language (oral or sign or symbol). The communication matrix is an assessment tool designed to provide insights into how learners express themselves and what steps to consider to promote progress as competent communicators.
