Communication switches motivate young Alex
The Red Eagle Foundation were delighted to fund the £448 required for Communication Switches for Alex Mouchamitsin. Alex has significant visual impairment which impacts his ability to process visual information. Alex is motivated by auditory stimulation such as music and the spoken word.
The communication switches are linked to various items such as toys, a spinning globe and a pillow, all designed to develop his understanding of cause and effect. Alex is already showing signs of improvement, exploring his tray more to find items that he recalls were there previously. With continued practice at home, Alex is far more likely to develop his communication skills.
Good luck Alex, we all wish you the very best for your future.
