Switch / Touch Screen Videos


Switch videos are animations or slideshows set to music, which can be controlled by a range of common assistive access devices. They are designed to help children understand and generalise cause and effect (the action / reaction bond), one of the foundation stones for early learning. The videos can be played online or downloaded for use on a PC or Macintosh computer.

Comic Strip Conversations

Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have trouble interpreting social
situations and understanding speech as quickly as most social interactions require. A Comic
Strip Conversation is a conversation between two or more people using simple illustrations in
a comic strip format. They show children how to behave in a socially acceptable manner and
conform to social standards. The effectiveness can be enhanced by incorporating a child’s
favorite cartoon character (ex. SpongeBob, Superman, etc.) into the illustration.
