Using switches for the first time? Hilary Norton looks at two sources of help
If children are beginning to use switches in your classroom, there are two new products that will prove invaluable.
The first, Learning Journeys: Switch Progression Road Map, is a booklet (free to download) to support the teacher in assessing children’s capabilities, setting targets for them and teaching the skills that they need to access communication and learning. The second is Switch Skills Champions software, also from Inclusive Technology, which offers the learners exciting games that take them through various levels of switch use starting with very simple exercises for beginners.
