Subject-verb inversion

1

I know the normal pattern in English would be "subject+verb" in most sentences. I also remember some exceptions: questions, locative inversions, etc. However, I remember vaguely an exception that always make me doubt: the one motivated by the presence of a "heavy" subject. In the following example, may I switch the order or is there any other solution for my sentence?

 

"In order to facilitate the intervention, were used power-point presentations, ballot boxes for the activity 6, flashcards and a guide for teachers aimed at boosting self-esteem, self-control and assertiveness."

 

As you can see, English is not my first language, but I hope you can understand my question. Thanks in advance!
