Eye Gaze Communication Device

Ashleigh’s OT told us about a computer system a person at her school is using that uses eye gaze for selecting items on the screen.

We wanted to learn more so we went for an evaluation at The Perlman Center, a part of Cincinnati Childrens Hospital.  They have a great augmentative communication department there.

We have been having sessions with a Speech Therapist and OT who have been working with different devices and different access methods to identify the best fit.

Ash tried a couple of communication devices that use eye gaze technology to make the selections.  It is very cool and may just be the thing to overcome the issues she has had in the past using a device.  The eye gaze computer from Tobii seems to work  the best so far but we have some other things to test.  Check out Tobii website for more.
