A program to train the handling of 1 or 2 switchesSwitchTrainer is an app designed to learn how to use one or two switches. The app offers a special feature, i.e. that the touchscreen itself may be used for scan operation instead of external switches (Touch-Scanning). The entire screen or the screen divided into two halves will then work like switches. Furthermore, SwitchTrainer is perfectly suited for learning to use a touchscreen. The target groups are children with physical impairments or with a learning disability. Apart from having fun with playing, it is the aim of the program to automatize the use of one or two switches to finally be able to use 2-switch-scanning. The different games offer a range of possibilities to learn, train and implement the use of two switches or the handling of the touchscreen. The players self-initiative and learning by doing are the key issues rather than reacting to given tasks and solving of exercises.
