An eye control approach to sensory learning and rehabilitation

Eye Control has been successfully implemented in the field of Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC).  However, the vast majority of the successful user group have a sufficient level of comprehension and are therefore ready to comprehend the skills required to successfully communicate.
Also, Immersive learning has been successfully implemented into many sensory and learning environments. These often include interactive floors which are activated by physical movement.  Those who interact with these projected floors and walls must have sufficient physical movement to cause the content to react.  This content might be fish in a pond, snow on the floor, sand on the floor, splatting paint on the floor.
In this session, we aim to explore how the two technologies can be merged to promote a more inclusive model of provision.  Those who cannot access the floors are able to access content via eye control.  The hopeful outcome of these studies will be that system users with a lower level of comprehension are able to better understand the access method through a series of immersive and interactive experiences.  Over time, we expect to see that eye control training is carried out in sensory rooms with highly motivating and educational content.  In turn we expect to see better use of AAC at an earlier stage.
The system users may have the following conditions; cerebral palsy, brain injury, autism, stroke.
