Description:

Everything I know about switches I learned through trial and error. Join me to view video examples of how students with complicated bodies can access communication through switches. We will work through the process of introducing the switch and setting up the user for success. Let’s watch how bodies move to pick the best device and switch settings, optimal switch selection, and switch interface that best matches the access needs. 

 

Objectives

Participants will learn how to introduce switches for success.

Participants will understand how to match switch features to the complicated body in front of them.

Participants will learn three ways to use switches to make this access method motivating.
