Non-verbal communication/ low verbal communication skills/ fine motor skills or can use a switch control mechanism to control a device.

The Big Beamer wireless switch operates with the same stability and freedom of the original Jelly Beamer but with a large 12.7 cm activation area. Big Beamer includes four interchangeable twist tops in red, green, yellow and blue. Additional switch tops in other colours are available separately. The Big Beamer Twist includes a wireless transmitter and receiver. Wireless access occurs by turning both components on and plugging the receiver into any switch-adapted toy or device. Beamers are paired with their own receiver, meaning multiple devices can be used in the same room at the same time, without interference or cross-talking. The range is effective up to 10 metres. The Big Beamer has a long battery life with built-in sleep mode for maximum energy efficiency. Any switch can be made wireless by plugging it into a Jelly Beamer. Both the transmitter and receiver require 2 AA batteries (not included). This switch is mountable using any AbleNet Mounting System such as the Universal Switch Mounting System with a Universal Mounting Plate.
