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.


Tim
