Build It

Sensory Build It is a simple cause and effect app particularly for early learner assistive switch or device users.

Build It has modes to support an early learner developing single and double access switch use. You can use a wide range of access switches and also the Microsoft Adaptive Controller/XBox controller, on most devices and computers. Build It also responds to screen tap, as well as external keyboard control (space, enter, 1, 2).

The app provides a large range of switch/tap activated early learning animated scenes with sounds including musical instruments, animals, underwater, space, toys, patterns and more.
