Eyegaze 101: Getting started

Presented by

Kristin Whitfield

Kindly sponsored by Control Bionics


Webinar Overview

Eye gaze as a way to access high tech Augmentative and Alternative Communication devices has come a long way since it was introduced!  It is now available on a variety of communication devices and is generally funded along with the communication device itself.  Just because eye gaze is a more commonly used access method, it doesn’t necessarily mean that clinicians, teachers, and family members feel comfortable using or teaching it.  This course is designed to present the basics about eye gaze technology, who can use it, and how to set it up.   We will use demonstrations and case studies to help you feel more comfortable getting started with eye gaze! 

Learning Objectives  

As a result of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify at least two characteristics of individuals who may use eye gaze to access an AAC device and two contraindications
  2. Describe three options for making selection with eye gaze
  3. State at least four best practices for getting started with eye gaze
