Helpkidztolearn is fantastic for all learners, as even without a switch, they can access most of these game by hitting the space bar on the keyboard. This has been tested this with many of our learners and with some physical support you can guide them. You can set up a free user log in, which will give you some access to some activities the learners have used in School.
