"Great Idea! ★★★★★ My 5-year-old autistic son loves playing with my I-phone and I've downloaded many different games for him. As soon as I downloaded Look in My Eyes it became a new favorite. He loves to play it. His eye contact is definitely improving. I'm not sure if I can give sole credit for that to this game, but the game sure doesn't hurt! He doesn't really understand the reward part of the game and getting points for things to buy, but I'm sure that will come in time. Great game!!"
"Well done! ★★★★★ My 7 year old really enjoyed this app. At first he resisted making eye contact but eventually turned his head and was so excited when he would get the answers correct. Not only does this game help with eye contact but number recognition which is a struggle for my little guy." (From customer reviews.)
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.
