An Eye Control Teaching Device for Students Without Language Expressive Capacity: EagleEyes
Edwin Mellen Press, Jan 1, 2001 - Education - 117 pages
EagleEyes is an eye-control teaching device for children with severe disabilities without language expression. This report describes the effects of the EagleEyes technology on the development of communication over a four-year period with seven students who have no language expressive capacity and little or no voluntary movement below the neck. Major questions examined are the degree to which each student could develop eye control skill sufficient for the student to communicate and develop language skills, and the potential for using the technology for academic purposes. EagleEyes' impact on students' sense of personal pride is also discussed. DiMattia directs the Campus School in the Lynch School of Education at Boston College.
