Fraser is 14, has cerebral palsy and attends a mainstream school in Glasgow
Fraser’s movement and speech are severely affected by his condition, and he is unable to communicate in a way that the vast majority of people would understand. He is presented with challenges from the minute he opens his eyes, but his communication aid has opened up his world.
Fraser uses his eyes to control Grid 3 AAC software, on his Power Pad. By sustaining his gaze on the different targets in Gris 3, he is able to select words, compose messages and communicate.
His eye movement can also be used to control the cursor, meaning he is able to access his computer and complete his school work.
Fraser also uses his communication aid to control devices around his home including his bedroom lights and television.
He enjoys using the technology to be able to speak to his friends, arrange to go out on the weekend, and email members of his family.
“Eye gaze technology has opened up so many horizons for Fraser” said his dad John, “People can see parts of his personality that might not be obvious to them at first.”
