Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) offer a promising potential for thousands of individuals living with severe physical disability to interact with the world using their brain. However, for many children with severe physical disability, there are still too few opportunities to use, interact, and practice with BCI, effectively limiting their fundamental right to participate in their world. This webinar looks at the significant unmet need in translating BCI research and developments to children who could greatly benefit from such technology. The conversation will include insights and discussion on how to approach designing BCIs and neurotechnology for children and why it is critical to include children in advancements of neurotechnology.
