We will design a custom technology for your child using signals from their neck and/or face. For this, we will ask you and your child to come to Holland Bloorview and test different versions of the new technology until a good device is developed.
We will train your child at Holland Bloorview or at school over 10 weeks, once a week for 1 hour or twice a week for 30 minutes, so that they can learn to use the new device. Additionally, we will train you and your child’s teacher regarding the device and ways that it can be used at home and at school.
We will also ask you and your child to complete 9 evaluation sessions to assess their current access technology and their new device. These sessions will take approximately 30 minutes and will involve playing computer games and completing questionnaires.
