Ashley Choosing Books via Eye-Gaze
[Title] Ashley: Choosing Books via Eye-Gaze
Introduction: Ashley uses eye-gaze for yes/no, looking to her right
for “no” and her left for “yes”.
A girl is sitting in a wheelchair in her school library. A classmate
is helping her choose books by using yes and no questions while the
girl answers with her eye-gaze. The girl looks to her right for ‘no’
and to her left for ‘yes.’
With each book, the classmate asks the girl if she wants it while holding
out her hands for yes and no eye-gaze options.
Girl [holding up her left hand for “no” and her right hand
for “yes”]: “You want The Three Little Pigs?”
Girl: “How the Rabbit Stole Fire?”
Girl: “um…No” [repeating Ashley’s answer]
Girl: “Beauty and the Beast?
Girl: “Yeah” [laughter from a boy]
Girl: “Robin Hood?”
Girl: “Yes or no…Yes, I mean, yes…no.” [emphasizing
her hand positions for the possible answers]
Girl: “Yes” [repeating Ashley’s answer]
Girl: “Fairy Tales and Fables?”
Once she’s chosen a couple books, another classmate agrees to
help her check them out.
Girl to boy: “Can you go check these out with her?”
