Bluetooth Switch Makes Electronic Games Accessible for Students With CVI
Help me give my students the chance to play games just like their peers. This Bluetooth switch pairs with an iPad to allow switch accessible games to be played by students with multiple impairments, especially motor difficulties.
My students are all so unique and special. They all are visually impaired and some have additional motor or speech impairments. They range in ages from pre-school to 21. All of them come ready to work and brighten my day with their smiles!
Technology is a wonderful tool that has allowed us to provide games that are visually stimulating to my students with visual impairments. The backlighting, colorful images and movement engage students with Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI). However, some students have motor difficulties and have trouble accurately tapping the screen.
I use hand over hand or hand under hand, depending on the student, but I would love to bring something to my student so that they could be more independent.
There are a number of switch accessible apps available on the iPad and I just need a switch for my student to activate them with less prompting.
