A switch may be a doorway to access the world for those experiencing Learning Difficulties and individuals with Physical disabilities alike. It is therefore really important that staff are aware of best practice and apply it in their work in the classroom.

This course attempts to cover every aspect of the development of the use of switching for Learners at all levels of ability. Starting with the range of switches and covering such aspects of switching as switch rules, establishing cause and effect, teaching with toys and troubleshooting problems, the course builds a set of objectives for use in developing switch skills in Learners.

  • What is the best type of toy to use with switches and why?
  • What can I do about the Learner who keeps tapping the switch over and over?
  • How do I tell if my Learner has understood the concept of cause and effect?
  • What is the best switch to use and how can I keep it in the right position?
  • etc

With lots of audience participation, the course attempts to answer these questions and more.
