We are looking for a brightly lit switch to attract the attention of children with severe profound disabilities with CVI. The switch should be small/Medium in size, 3 x 3 to 6 x 6 inches square, or in diamenter. The switch should have a non skid bottom so it will stay firmly on a wheelchair tray. We would like it as soon as possible. email@example.com
Note: CVI = Critical Visual Impairment
