Inclusive Eye Gaze is our amazing new resource to enable learners to interact meaningfully with their environment. It is a high-tech system with an inbuilt camera which tracks where the eyes are looking, enabling the eyes to move the mouse pointer around. We have EyeGaze systems at both Hazel Court Secondary and FE.
There are fun and motivating activities that provide a progression of skills from experiential/cause and effect to targeting.
Using Eye Gaze technology we have the opportunity to:
Teach visual attention skills, cause and effect understanding and simple access skills.
Assess eye movement patterns, visual tracking, visual attention, visual discrimination skills and early comprehension and preferences.
Stimulate visual attention and purposeful looking skills.
We are leading on collaborative working with the Specialist Teachers for the Visually Impaired from the Service for Children with Sensory Needs to develop their assessments of visual skills and difficulties and to set targets to extend and improve visual skills using EyeGaze. This has been developed primarily for those with a visual impairment but the framework will be suitable to use with everyone who is learning to use EyeGaze.
Please speak to Katherine (at Secondary) or Maureen (at FE) if you would like any further information on Eye Gaze.
