Via http://teachinglearnerswithmultipleneeds.blogspot.com/ I saw this link
to a paper about switch use...

http://www.inclusive.co.uk/articles/switch-progression-road-map

To quote...

This booklet draws together over ten years of best practice research and
classroom observations from around the world into a comprehensive teaching
and assessment document you can use every day. Detailing every stage of
switch skills acquisition from cause and effect to confident scanning, this
document will help you plan meaningful and motivating routes to success for
your learners using switches to access communication, learning and leisure.

Packed with practical advice and tons of tried and tested teaching examples,
the Switch Progression Road Map will help you assess a learner’s baseline,
set achievable learning milestones and provide you with all the help you
need to teach these important skills in a way which is both meaningful and
motivating for your students. At every stage along the way the booklet
provides advice on which software and hardware works best and how to set
them up to personalise the learning experience.

As the blog post says it's obviously a commercial publication, but still an
interesting read.
