Easter Seals of SEPA: A Leader In Developing Communication Using Eye Gaze Technology With Young Children!

by Sandy Masayko

In November 2016,  Joy S. McGowan, Sandy Masayko, and Melissa Spada presented a seminar on “Developing Communication in Young Children Using Eye-Gaze Technology” at the national convention of the America Speech-Language-Hearing Association in Philadelphia.  The presentation was accepted for the conference after competitive peer review.

Easter Seals of SEPA provides the Assistive Technology resources and support to evaluate and implement eye tracking technology for communication for children who have limited speech production and motor difficulties. Our Easter Seals team presented training guidelines to determine candidacy for successful use of an eye-tracking system.

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      The place to start is at your child’s school. Tell the school about your interest in this technology. The school has access to this kind of technology and can tell you whether they have tried it with your child and if so, what her response was.
      If you need additional support from us, please let us know and we will call you.
