This webcast from the University of Nebraska discusses communication support for people who have minimal movement resulting from disorders such as ALS, brainstem strokes and Myasthenia Gravis. AAC devices with various interfaces are discussed.
The site provided ways to use technology to help people communicate however, in the real world it is not that simple. A student who has no real world experience with these devices not only has to teach the patient but the family and the staff. The site does not help with the "buy-in" that is needed for the use of technology to be truly useful. This is the main reason I would be hesitant to use it in the classroom as a teaching tool.
On the positive side, it does give plenty of ideas for laser points, eye gaze and other non-traditional ways to use communication boards with our patients who are otherwise unable to use devices.
