Eye Gaze: Why This System Is A Game-Changer


Course Description

While eye gaze systems have been on the market for over 25 years, it is only in the last 10 years that technology has improved to the point of making these systems usable for many individuals with disabilities. Fager, Bardach, Russell, & Higginbotham (2012) suggested that perhaps the most significant new development in access technologies for children with severe physical disabilities is eye tracking. As technology continues to expand at a frenetic pace, practitioners are struggling to keep up with changes and be familiar with all available access solutions.

This course focuses on understanding how eye gaze works and improving the ability of Speech-Language Pathologists and other related services and education/rehabilitation professionals to perform appropriate evaluations and provide necessary services to assist individuals for whom eye gaze is necessary and/or preferable.
