 Looking for free accessible books and activities for your students who use switches (and those who aren’t)? Tarheel Reader and Tarheel Gameplay are two free websites from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that allow your students to either read simple accessible books on a variety of topics, create their own books, or play easy to use accessible games. These sites can be used with touchscreen or 1-3 switches on iPads, Chrome browser, and even within Pictello.
