Choosing and turn taking
Choosing and Turn Taking are two critical skills that can help to master before we get into the world of AAC communication. They are, in fact the first steps that show if AAC vocabulary use is even a possibility for a user.
Here we are introducing the first real attempts at active targeting using gaze interaction; and it is important that at this stage there are no negative consequences if the choice is wrong. We like to call this “No-Fail” targeting. Use online resources, flash based games, games applications and simple, large button Page Sets and games from Pageset Central and Tobii Dynavox’s own Sono Primo software. These are truly extensions of Exploration but here, engaging and exploring with help from assistants and care givers.

The Sensory component of the Tobii Dynavox Eye Gaze Learning Curve is all about establishing screen engagement.
Early Eye Tracking
The Early Eye Tracking component focuses on the care giver looking for an appropriate response in the user.
This is possibly the most critical component of the Eye Gaze Learning Curve. Exploration is about the user getting to know their computer, applications and Eye Control.
Choosing & Turn Taking
Choosing and Turn Taking are critical steps that need to be learned before we get into the world of AAC communication. They are, in fact the first steps that show if AAC vocabulary use is even a possibility for a user.
The Communication component is all about Communication and AAC Vocabularies. This has been, and will continue to be, a main focus area for Tobii Assistive Technology.
Computer Access & Distance Communication
The focus of the Computer Access & Distance Communication component of the Eye Gaze Learning Curve is on full computer access for literary users with functional disabilities or the need for rehabilitation through eye control and gaze interaction.
