Spotlight on Success

Student using ATTomorrow is 16-years-old and has Rett Syndrome.  The family came to Pathways Therapy Center looking for help with communication.  The family wanted to focus on a topic and help get Tomorrow to communicate more effectively.  They used the Tobii I-15 with eyegaze interaction. 

This communication device helped both Tomorrow and the family.  She has been given a voice with this device and is now able to communicate her needs better.
