Eye Gaze 101: Getting Started

Eye gaze as a way to access high tech Augmentative and Alternative Communication devices has come a long way since it was introduced!  It is now available on a variety of communication devices and is generally funded along with the communication device itself.  Just because eye gaze is a more commonly used access method, it doesn’t necessarily mean that clinicians, teachers, and family members feel comfortable using or teaching it.  This course is designed to present the basics about eye gaze technology, who can use it, and how to set it up.   We will use demonstrations and case studies to help you feel more comfortable getting started with eye gaze!

Basic Editing for Grid 3

Grid 3 software is the communication software used Control Bionics NeuroNode Trilogy. The software provides many different communication pages that are a great place to start for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) users. The next step? Customizing the communication pages so they are personalized for the individual user. This class will provide an overview of the editing menu, demonstrate how to edit buttons and pages, and show how to add and connect pages. Finally, we will explore the Settings menu and see what additional customizations can be made there.

Scanning 102: Tips for Teaching

Fundamentals of Scanning

Learning the basics of scanning is a great start but what happens next? This course takes off where Scanning 101 left off. We will discuss ways to facilitate accurate, purposeful switch use and then move to key considerations for teaching the different types of scanning. Finally, we will discuss implications for switching from one scanning type to another. Join us for an hour filled with ideas for planning and implementing scanning!

New Page Sets from Control Bionics:

Who Are They For And Why?

Come learn about three new page sets designed in the Grid 3 software for individuals who use Control Bionics communication devices! In this session, we will demonstrate the features and functions of the following new page sets: 16-Location High Contrast Auditory Scanning, 16-Location Auditory Scanning (Kids and Young Adults), and 16-Location Auditory Scanning (Adults). In addition, we will discuss why these page sets were created, who they were designed for, and how they can be customized for individual users. Because of the specific nature of these page sets, no other AAC vocabularies or communication software will be referenced. While it is not necessary for the class, the page sets are available here.

Scanning 101: Getting Started

Fundamentals of Scanning

Scanning is an important access method for Augmentative and Alternative Communication.  Often viewed as a last resort, scanning can feel daunting to understand and teach.  This course is designed to cover the basics about scanning, including the types of scanning, making selections in scanning (e.g., switches), and characteristics of individuals who use scanning for communication.  A second session, Scanning 102, will dive into how to facilitate accurate, purposeful switch use and teach scanning for communication!
