    Switches and the iPad
    The iPad can also be accessed using switches. The device now allows for the use of row column scanning. To connect the iPad to a switch, you will need to use a Bluetooth switch interface. There are several available on the market at this time. These include, but may not be limited to, the following:
    Blue2 Bluetooth Switch, by Ablenet
    the Tecla Shield, by Tecla
    Bluetooth Switch Interface (BSI), by RJ Cooper
    These interfaces are paired to the iPad via Bluetooth. The switch is then plugged into the interface. At this time, it is not possible to do mouse emulation on the iPad. However, iOS 10 allows the user to design and implement switch "recipes" to perform different actions, such as turning the page of a book.

    iTaalk company is a non-profit set up specifically to help with training and funding of iPads as assistive technology. They have a page of scholarship/grant information http://itaalk.org/resources/fundingsources.html
    In PA, consumers can apply for a mini-loan from the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) at www.patf.us. It may fund a low (or NO) interest loan to purchase assistive technology for a person with a disability.
    Apps for Telecommunication
    Modern telecommunication is no longer just about landlines. Most of us rely on smart phones to make calls, text, answer and send emails, and to check in on social media. The use of apps for telecommunication can benefit people with disabilities, making it easier to communicate across settings, participate in work, and self advocate. The following is a list of apps that may benefit people with disabilities. Many of tof these apps are free and many may be used over Wifi networks. Some may only work on Apple products and others are cross platform. While apps are listed by disability type, there is a great deal of crossover. As well, the native accessiblity features on any tablet or cell phone should be considered. Word prediciton is built into many keyboards and may also help the individual user to send texts or emails. This list will grow over time, and we welcome feedback as to apps that should be included on the list. Let us know what works for you!
