SwitchIt! Diggers is a cause and effect training program designed for use by children with learning, cognitive, upper extremity, and fine motor disabilities or spinal cord injury. This cause and effect program is for children who are motivated by large vehicles and earth moving equipment. It has graphics, animation, and sound effects for ten different vehicles, including a fork-lift, cranes, backhoes, and dump trucks. The program is fully configurable for one or more switches, mouse, touchscreen, or IntelliKeys (see entry).
Switch It! Diggers was designed to develop and demonstrate understanding of cause and effect through pressing a switch (or other input device) to build a scene.
SwitchIt! Products by Inclusive
With SwitchIt Arcade, SwitchIt Christmas, SwitchIt Diggers, SwitchIt Gadgets, SwitchIt! Opposites, SwitchIt Patterns, SwitchIt Pictures and SwitchIt! Scenes learners can press a switch (or switches)) and see flash cards appear, a picture build up or watch an animated story unfold.
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.
