Rooney using a Voice Output Device
Since Rooney was a little puppy we have been teaching him to "touch" a switch. We taught him this so he could listen to and participate in turn taking activities with students that use switches to access their environment. Rooney uses a switch to throw a ball, activate a spinner and switch toys. This action gets lots of laughs and the students often join right in to "talk" with Rooney.
