The vision of my research is to maximize participation in society by individuals with disabilities through the study of human factors and the development of assistive technology devices and strategies. Particular emphasis is placed on study of the role of assistive technologies in cognitive and language development in children who have severe physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy. The current research program focuses on the evaluation of access methods such as switches, eye-gaze systems and brain-control interfaces to access activities, including control of computer games and robotic systems for play and educational tasks by children with severe motor disabilities.
