What is it called....

    Hia everyone,

    Looking for the correct terminology for a technique that I used in my last agency placement as I am filling out an application in the hope to return to the school as a full time Special Support Assistant.

    Whilst at the school, I worked with a learner that communicated through their eyes.
    I would hold up a small perspex piece with two pictures on in each corner and I would look through a small hole in the middle to see which directions the learners eyes moved to when answering the question (questions were usually about how they were feeling, happy or sad e.t.c) but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called.

    Does anyone know?

    I would say a "low tech eye gaze board" or just "eye gaze board".

    Good luck with your application!
