Paper discusses the Single Switch Performance Test (SSPT), which is a clinical tool designed to facilitate performance measures via single switch for people with disabilities. The software tool allows a computer to be used to practice switch use and collect switch-use data. The SSPT measures three parameters: (1) time to activate the switch, (2) time to release the switch, and (3) speed of repeated switch activation. The switch is connected to a computer via USB mouse. The SSPT is available as a free download from the website of the Augmentative and Alternative Communication Institute (http://www.aacinstitute.org). This paper was presented at the 2005 annual conference of RESNA, the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America and is available on CD-ROM.
