Tell us about yourself?
My name is Tolu and I am 16 years old; I really enjoy school, I have lots of friends, I have a great sense of humour, I go to church every Sunday and I live with my Mum and Dad.
How do you communicate?
I have a Grid Pad 12 that I use with Voco Chat; eye gaze is my access method. I have been using it for about 7 years.
I like using eye gaze to talk, it helps me build relationships.
What do you think about Look Lab?
I really like the Hoops game and Tunnel Dash. The Hoops game is relaxing. Tunnel Dash helps me to be accurate, eye gaze is easier now.
I’ve enjoyed testing Look Lab. One change I asked for in Hoops, was to make the ball bounce off the sides.
‘Look Lab has helped me to focus, my looking has improved. I am quicker than before!’ – Tolu
The games and activities in Look Lab have definitely helped to improve our students dwelling skills and confidence with eye gaze.

Meeting users early in the development process has helped us make some important decisions. We have been able to design Look Lab in a way that places our users at the centre of the experience.
