IPad and double switch device

I am the mother of a child who has a developmental disability. My daughter uses her iPad and switch to make choices. She can’t talk. She understands well many things. At times it can be hard for her to let people know what she needs or wants. That is why she started using her iPad and switch. She started about 2-3 years ago. Her iPad uses a program called “Go Talk Now”. This program helps in creating and recording option sets for her to choose from.

What are the steps?

The switch connects to the iPad to the program “Go talk now”. Then you have to open one of the option sets. For the first steps my daughter needs help. Then, using her hands, she pushes the left side of the switch to listen to her options. She pushes the right side to choose the option she wants.

The iPad and switch can be used to communicate wants and needs. They can also be used to play games, listen to music and read stories. For my daughter this has been great in giving her a voice.
