RESNA is a standards developing organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Access options to AAC have expanded substantially over the years; however, many individuals who rely on AAC are limited to a single modality access strategy. This focus on single modality access can be limiting for individuals who fatigue, are medically fragile, have positioning changes throughout the day, and/or who require access in a wide range of environments/tasks. This presentation will highlight the need for the development of multi-access options and discuss the preliminary results of a combination eye tracking/scanning access strategy prototype used by a range of individuals with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs.
