Here are my favorites:
- Switch hopper or crick interface to access the computer: I use the intellitools keyboard as well, but these get more use because they are small, portable, and can adapt powerpoint, interactive book websites, etc.
- Powerlink Control Unit: I am very lucky to have a total of five of these, due to some of my kids receiving them for free from APH. We use these for cooking, listening to music, books on tape, I have a sensory wall with all sorts of lights, fans, etc. hooked up to one, light up fish tanks, and more.
- Step-by-step switch: I can't live without these! Each of my students has one, and I record it at the end of every day with news (from their perspective) about their day. The families then listen to them at night, and record a message for them to share during Morning meeting about what they did last night/over the weekend. We also use them for talking with others in the hallway, commenting in class, recording books on them for the students to read, etc.
- Reading A-Z: I love this website for reading instruction. They have printable books at various levels, correlated to DRA scores and other reading assessments. They have comprehension questions and quizzes to go along with books, as well as a benchmark book for each level, so you can assess when a student is ready to move on.
- Switch adapted pourer: we use this in our cooking activities, to roll dice during games, during art, and anything else we can come up with. It has become a necessary tool in our classroom.
