There are a couple different companies that make eye gaze devices, so we will have to check the others out as well. We are now on the waiting list for a trial (which is about 3-4 months long). We need to get the funding from insurance or Medicaid before the trial starts, so that will keep me busy until then. This was the motivation I needed to get my appeal letter in the mail for the insurance. I am still waiting for the letter telling us if Abby will get the Michelle P Waiver and Medicaid. One of them will pay for it, one way or another.
I am very excited for what a device like this could do for Abby. I can't wait to have one in our house to see how she responds to it. It could be life changing for all of us. It's going to be a long process to get the right device. I know some of you have been through this before, so I would love any advice you can give!
