image of child in bed looking up at a device screenWe are thrilled to see the great work that St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children has accomplished with our Grant funds. The photo here is showing the Eye Gaze Communication system, which helps children communicate where previously, due to speech and other impairments, they could not. The device reads the child’s eye movements and thereby allows communication. With grant support, St. Mary’s Kids was able to obtain two Eye Gaze units. The Eye Gaze devices have been greatly beneficial to so many kids at the St. Mary’s Kids facility, allowing them an ability to communicate with others to a degree that once seemed impossible! Truly a great investment!
