Description:

THEY ARE DOING IT WITH THEIR EYES!!!

Eye gaze is one of the newest, most technically improved and amazing access methods to AAC. However, for eye gaze to be a successful access method, child specific strategies must be implemented. Clinicians must use what we know about vision and communication to create an optimal learning environment.  Come learn with us about how to make device accommodations for this access method. This class will also demonstrate specific implementation strategies and games that increase success with eye gaze AAC users.  Hope to SEE you there. ;)

 

3 Objectives:

1.    Participants will understand basic calibration and eye gaze set up features regardless of device.

2.    Participants will learn three implementation strategies for beginning eye gaze users.

3.    Participants will learn three implementation strategies for increasing speed, accuracy and endurance with eye gaze access to Augmentative and Alternative Communication.
