    Hi @StRBates, welcome to the community. Sorry to hear your son has had problems with Eyegaze. How long has he been using it?

    There are quite a few different eye gaze systems out there (if eye gaze is assessed to the best/most appropriate method) so it is worth getting trials of a few because some people get on with one system but not another.  Also there are lots of settings and tweaks that can be done which can make a huge difference.  My son uses half eye gaze and half direct access with a keyguard, but his first attempts at eye gaze (a few years ago granted) were not great.  Hope you have good support/assessment from local SALT and regional hub (if appropriate)
