Head switches

SLP private practice
I have a 15 yr old girl working on an old DynaVox4.  We are working on accessing using her head & 2 switches.  She is eligible for an upgraded DynaVox.  However, are there any other companies/devices with similar capabilities that you recommend?

Thanks!

Hi there-

The eye gaze systems have really gotten good. Any chance that your student might be able to develop those skills? A lot of kids that did well with scanning have become good eye gaze users. You might want to check out FRS (e.g., ComLink) and Tobii (e.g., C15). They also have scanning devices in addition to the eye gaze products. Both of those companies are good about having their reps work with you during  the eval to provide  access to the equipment, assist with set up, calibration, etc.

Hope that helps.
