All About Switches

Presenter: Wendy L. Buckley, M.Ed., Ed.S.

What are switches and how are they used? This presentation will explore the use of simple access technology in the form of switches which can be used to activate a toy, access an iPad or interact with a computer. We will look at examples of switches, criteria for selection, and how switches are used for activities of cause & effect, communication, and environmental control for children with visual impairments and multiple disabilities.
