thought balloons flowing

Register here for the Oregon Technology Access Program 2017-18 webinar series, a two-part session on using the Communication Matrix, led by Gayl Bowser.

The free series begins on Thursday, Oct. 26, and concludes Thursday, Dec. 7. Both sessions are scheduled from 2:30 to 4 p.m. and both take place at the Douglas Education Service District, 1871 N.E. Stephens St., Roseburg.

The Communication Matrix is a free, online expressive language assessment tool used in working with people with complex communication needs. The Oct. 26 session will present several examples of Communication Matrix profiles and discuss ways each can be used. Participants will learn how to show progress between assessments, compare results with parents and develop IEP goals, among other tasks.

On Dec. 7, participants will meet a student by video and apply observations about the student to complete a Communication Matrix assessment.

Instructor Gayl Bowser is an independent consultant who focuses on the integration of technology into educational programs of students with disabilities.
