Jackson is a little boy living with a disability who is full of life. He is a happy child who brings joy to his family and everyone who knows him. His mother Hannah, describes him as “the strongest, bravest, most incredible boy” she knows.

Jackson was born very premature and at the age of 4, he required specialized technology for  communication.

“Jackson was born weighing 1 pound 10 ounces, and has since exceeded all of the expectations that doctors set for him,” Hannah says. “He has yet to walk, talk or eat on his own but he is always smiling.”

“Jackson is non-verbal, so by receiving the EyeGaze system, a whole world of communication has been opened to him with just the use of his eyes. We are so thankful for this amazing technology that will provide Jackson with his own voice.” – Jackson’s mother, Hannah

After receiving the EyeGaze communication aid through Easter Seals, Jackson is now able to express himself in new ways and build his confidence and independence!

Watch as Jackson demonstrates how he uses his EyeGaze system:
