Description of Idea:
From user @holly
My child is beginning to learn how to communicate with a switch and interface. Would love to get the help of someone to make these.
MMC Entry I.D: 6252March 11, 2021 at 7:40 pm #9636
This request came through our us switch collab expression of interest form. User is not yet on the forum but invited. PA chapter contact kim/ @FutureMakersAcademy could you help?
Makers: For this project we don’t have a lot of info so we would need to find out which switch may work the best according to the strength and abilities of the child’s movements.
and we also created a [slide deck including more detail about uses for each switch and interface here](https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/14HDW5FJvs0BMsUc63b8cjC9Ozmm9xLgBIaYPVDYUxlI/edit?usp=sharing)
[Here are some switches](https://makersmakingchange.com/assistive-devices/?_sf_s=switch) we have available in our library-please comment below if you have any questions about these!
Interfaces helps a switch talk to another device like a computer or AAC. You often cannot plug a switch directly into these devices.
Here is one way a switch interface is used with AAC

Also here are a few interface options we have in the Makers Making Change Library:
[FAIO Multiplexor Wireless](https://makersmakingchange.com/project/faio-multiplexer-wireless/)
[FAIO Feather All in One Switch](https://makersmakingchange.com/project/faio-feather-all-in-one-switch/)
