Look In My Eyes – Interesting Social Skills App

Look In My Eyes


Look In My Eyes –
An interesting concept and application. It certainly should help focus kids attention on the eyes in the picture. Need to test whether it will actually translate in to the actually eye contact. Try it out and post your comments.

App Description from the developer

Eye contact is an important social skill that some children find challenging. “Look in My Eyes” helps them practice this skill – while earning fun rewards and playing creatively. It was designed for children on the autism spectrum – especially those with Asperger’s Syndrome – but any child who has difficulties with eye contact may benefit from playing.

The game rewards players for quickly focusing in on a person’s eyes. Through repeated practice we attempt to develop a habit that families can transfer to real life settings as they remind children to use the skills they have practiced in the game.

How do you play? Children look at a series of faces, and need to focus on the eyes quickly in order to answer correctly and earn points. The game makes repeated practice fun as children use the points they earn to buy items for their own virtual world – in this case a restaurant, complete with 5 different rooms. Over 40 items of furniture, food, and utensils can be rotated, enlarged, shrunk and positioned to create cool scenes. Kids can take snapshots of their creations and view them in the game’s Photo Gallery, the iPhone’s Camera Roll or the iPod touch’s Saved Photos.

The game’s unique reward system grew out of our decades of classroom teaching experience, observing what motivates young learners. We have combined that experience with our extensive training in best education practices and our many years of close personal relationships with children who have Asperger’s Syndrome and autism to create a social skills game we hope will benefit your child!

Recommended for ages 4-9.
