Although the Communication Matrix is mostly used as an assessment tool by SLPs and teachers, it was updated in 2004 to be used by parents as well.  As a parent , your input is one of the most valuable resources for your family member with complex communication needs. You are the one who truly knows how the individual communicates in the home setting, and you are the only one who can provide that valuable information.

We encourage more parents to take advantage of this valuable FREE resource! 

Here’s how:

  • Go to our website and click on “login/register” to create an account.
  • Select “Basic Individual” account and you will receive 5 free assessment credits. 
  • Once you are registered, click “Start a New Assessment” and respond to the series of questions from your perspective as a parent.
  • If you are more comfortable in another language, use our translation option in the top menu
  • We advise parents to complete the Matrix 1-2 times a year. The Matrix results and progress tracking feature make it easy to see how an individual's development is progressing.
  • If your credits run out, email us and let us know you are a parent using the Matrix and we will replenish your credits for free. For technical assistance or to request credits, contact us at:
