Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Calibrating the ECO

Over Spring Break we had a chance to use the ECO Eye gaze computer again. Here's some video of sweet Annie calibrating the computer. The first thing you need to do when using an eye gaze computer is to calibrate it so the computer can pick up your eyes. Its funny, the 3 eye gaze computers that we have tried have all use the Tobii eye gaze component so you would think that they would all calibrate the same but they don't. Annie does really well calibrating the ECO and I just LOVE this video she is concentrating so hard when she's calibrating and then she looks so proud when she see's how well she did!

I just love this computer, the freedom that it will provide for Annie will be life changing!

  1. That is so great!!! Isn't it amazing how they light up being able to control something and do what they are trying to! Glad you were able to get some time with one when it was working. Praying that Annie can get her own sometime soon!
