Using an eye gaze device for communication, computer access, and to control your environment can be a challenging task. In this course we will discuss points along the journey to successful eye gaze use for communication and increased independence. We will review important expectations to set regarding eye gaze use, the skills necessary for successful set-up of eye gaze, ways to support eye gaze exploration, and guidelines for evaluation with an eye gaze device.
Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion, participants will be able to:
· Describe the four journey points on the eye gaze journey
· Identify two features of communication software that support successful eye gaze use
· Name two supports that help to increase independence for an eye gaze user
