Big Book OF AV Europe Edition - Page 41 Touch Screen Displays



Fine Motor Delays -

Students can operate the screen using a finger, assistive device, or reach stick. Larger icons help them select the correct target to make their choices. The work area is designed to ensure that the majority of students are able to reach the entire surface.

Involuntary Arm Movements -

Students can use the interface to interact with applications on the LCD panel. This helps to accommodate their lack of precision and accuracy in directing the mouse pointer.

Visually Impaired -

The TAPit platform works with any software on your computer allowing teachers, students and parents to resize text and graphics, adjust brightness or contrast controls, and enlarge images or change background colors within seconds. The low-glare, matte finish display is shadow-free, providing optimal viewing for low-vision users.

Hearing Impaired -

Finger-touch input keeps hands free of pen tools that interfere with signing. Interactive media keeps students engaged. They can read from the board and sign at the same time, increasing opportunities for communication between teachers and students.

Developmental Delays -

The TAPit platform offers ongoing visual reinforcement to complement lessons and improve functional capabilities. While their eye movement increases, students with ASD, ADD, etc., can track content with greater ease. The physical interaction and visual stimulus offers an additional sensory channel to help process information.

Applications -

Any software, switch or website you currently use works with the TAPit platform. Use what is currently working with the students for activities. Keep the students in their routines and minimize additional preparation for the teachers. Occupational therapists can practice cause and effect, eye tracking, and extended reach capabilities with gaming software and websites. Every teacher has a preference, and if you use it on your computer, you can use it on the TAPit platform.

Warranty -

The TAP-it platform is protected by a three-year parts and labor warranty.
