On Thursday, August 7, Totally Wired entertained peers and staff during an exciting, stimulating, new summer event, the 2014 Electric Fireworks Show. Music blared through the sound system as a fireworks show was displayed on the stage’s screen. While colored fireworks popped up on the screen, members of the group individually controlled series of colored lights which they turned on and off using their switch replicating fireworks. Totally Wired is an Horizon High School student group under the direction of speech language pathologists and occupational therapists which consists of students with significant physical impairments who rehearse and participate in switch adapted performances in order to improve their switch access and alternative-augmentative communication skills.
