In this particular activity, the task is to put the colored pegs into the matching colored slots. If using 2 switches, pressing the first switch will move the hand, pressing the second switch will either pick up or put down the peg. If using 1 switch, the hand will move from one slot to the next automatically and stop for a pre-specified number of seconds. Pressing the switch will either pick up or put down the peg.
Program Description
VIRTUAL MOTOR SKILLS - Program #630 is a software program designed to give the user with limited motor skills the virtual experience of performing tasks by picking up, putting down, and moving objects around using 1 or 2 switches, a mouse click, or the computer keyboard. In many of the activities, the user controls a life-like hand to complete tasks such as picking up colored pegs and placing them in their matching colored slots.

Sounds like it may be difficult or too complex? Well, it couldn't be easier.

In the example of the pegboard, the hand will hover over the pegboard. If the hand is over a peg, pressing the switch will pick up the peg. If the hand is holding a peg and a switch is pressed, it will put the peg down. It's that simple.
