Examples for Use of Matrices: Relating Daily Activities to IEP Goals and Progress Monitoring

The following examples are provided as suggestions as ways to incorporate IEP goals into family routines during distance learning.

Please remember that each child and family are unique; the activities, lessons, and interventions should be tailored to each child’s specific IEP goals as well as to the family’s needs and schedules.

Your suggestions of goals, matrices, and resources should be made based on your knowledge of the child. It important to have ongoing discussions with families to further inform your lessons and suggestions.

The examples included below demonstrate the use of the matrix as a record form for progress monitoring. The form can be completed by the family and shared with the teacher. Another option is for the teacher to complete the form during a conversation with the family.
