The activities have exciting themes that provide all the motivation needed to help students who understand cause and effect to develop more disciplined switch use.

The bright, clear graphics are suitable for those with visual impairment and there is lots of sound and music too.

Almost all cause and effect programs feature switch building levels. These usually involve the child creating a picture or scene, ‘building’ it step-by-step with repeated switch presses or mouse clicks, or by touching the touch monitor. For many learners, switch building can serve as a useful next stage in the progression from cause and effect to making independent choices.
All switch building programs allow you to choose the number of steps the child will have to complete before receiving a reward. Initially you should start at one step where a single switch press will build up the scene and play the animation in much the same way as programs like Big Bang. When you feel the learner is ready you can change the settings to three presses.
