             This is a new version of the classic Switch Basics that helps students learn how to use a switch. Eight engaging activities give
             students experiences from cause-and-effect to row-column scanning. The program gives you control over the learning
             experience. You select the activities and place them in the desired order, select the number of presses and more. Use the data
             collection to assess student progress in control of the switch, intentionality and timing. Students have fun as they learn to
             attend and build switch skills.
