Why isn’t eye gaze as simple as it looks? Challenges for adults with acquired conditions

The purpose of this presentation is to share our clinical experiences regarding the challenges we have encountered with assessing and prescribing eye gaze technology to our adult clients with acquired conditions. We will specifically address issues related to: (1) clients who use specialized glasses such as bifocals; (2) clients who present with other visual issues such as strabismus, nystagmus, or visual field cuts; (3) clients who present with cognitive impairments; (4) clients who have limited supports; and (5) miscellaneous challenges such as the use of bi-pap masks or varying light sources in an environment. If time permits, setup and calibration on various eye gaze devices will be offered to audience members to see if they encounter some of the challenges discussed in the presentation.
