Eye Gaze Research
Better Together Alliance is proud to announce that it is joining a research project from University College London (UCL) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
The exciting new research is called FunVis and eyePoint (www.ucl.ac.uk/gaze) and involves testing a new functional near vision screening procedure (FunVis) and an eye pointing classification scale (eyePoint) for children with severe cerebral palsy. (Specifically, children with cerebral palsy affecting the whole body (GMFCS 4 or 5) who have little or no intelligible speech, aged 4-10 years who are developmentally between 9 months and 6 years.
The research aims to establish two new procedures to help families and professionals to identify children who may have difficulties using their looking skills for communication and learning.
