This is possibly the most critical component of the Tobii Dynavox Eye Gaze Learning Curve. Exploration is about the user getting to know their computer, applications and eye control.
This is time spent alone or with the assistance of a care giver learning to manipulate the screen; playing, splatting, smudging, revealing, painting, drawing, making music. There may even be some minimal “quick dwell” selecting and basic, no-fail, targeting here, but above all exploring and engaging, and having fun doing it.

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.
