Assistive Technologies in Jenny Parker's Room

Glennden is very proud of his ability to communicate through new software called Chat Fusion and Eyegaze. You'll notice a dot he wears on this forehead. Glennden can position this dot on the screen to answer questions posed by his teachers. With this eye tracking software, Glennden can manipulate the screen to speak answers.

According to Glennden's mother, he goes home each day and talks about Eyegaze!

If you get a chance, stop by Jenny's room and meet Glennden. He is amazing!
