Summary

Look2Talk was a project to support and learn from children who use their eyes to communicate. It focused on developing their use of low-tech AAC.

Based on Clare Latham’s guide to developing and supporting a communication book for finger-pointing communicators, we wanted to develop a guide particularly relevant for eye-pointing children. The guide was used with six families over an 18 month period, and was revised and updated based on our findings. 

The aim of this presentation is to share our findings from the Look2Talk project which came to an end in April 2008. Participants will be shown the updated folder and guide, and will learn about the revised five stages of vocabulary.

Video material will be used to show how this vocabulary was used and ways to support its development.
