Last week, I ran across this website while reviewing an evaluation conducted at a university in my state. If you are like me, you have treated some children with very severe language delays. One of the hardest things with these students is figuring out what to use when testing them. The Communication Matrix looks like a great solution to this problem if the client is in the early stages of communication, and best of all it is free. You register and fill out a survey on the website and a free results page is created. For the cost of a testing protocol ($6.00) a custom report can be created.
Check out their video here:
Their introduction YouTube video cuts out 17 seconds before their video on their website. The rest of the video talks about how you can go back and repeat the survey multiple times to show progress, and that all the information is completely secure and can’t be identified. They have a YouTube channel with 3 other short videos here.
I have only looked at a summary report from this website, but this will definitely be my go-to place for testing kids in the early stages of communication. The website again is: http://www.communicationmatrix.org/. Please comment below if you have used this evaluation.
