Title: Matthew's Switch

Matthew's Switch

is a simple customisable program that may allow parents, teachers and helpers to introduce and practice simple switch choices and evaluate whether a disabled child could eventually make use of one of the more advanced and expensive systems


Matthew is a 9 year old disabled lad with profound difficulties; he can't operate a mouse without help, and up till now, has not been able to successfully utilise the myriad of input devices available.


He currently uses an Italk 4 hardware switch at school and home, and his twin brother and I have designed a software version which we hope to run on a ipad for him to try. We have just uploaded Desktop versions for Mac & Windows for you all to try; let us know what you think
