Project summary:

Eye-tracking technology shows promise as a direct access method to communication systems for individuals with complex communication needs. In order to enable our clinical teams to make evidence-based decisions in their assessment and support of eye tracking, we conducted a scoping review of the literature on the use of eye-tracking technology as an alternative access solution for communication.

Our review focused on:

  1. The factors that contribute to successful use of eye-tracking technology
  2. Current practices for assessment, provision, setup, and training
  3. The impact of eye-tracking technology on communication.
