✩FizzBrain's "Look in My Eyes" series featured on "60 Minutes" October 23, 2011!✩ "Fantastic game! ★★★★★ My son has autism and I have tried many other games for him to play on the iPhone. Some hold his interest for a short while, but many do not. This game is definitely one that did from the start! While he is learning to look at faces more (thank you), he is also being rewarded in a way he loves – race cars! Vroom! He wants to play this game all the time now! Thank you FizzBrain and please keep up the great work!"
"My son loves this game! ★★★★★ This is now the first game my son (5-year-old with autism) goes to when he is allowed to play with my I-phone…. Thank you for creating a game that can actually help my son AND is fun too!"
"Great game, awesome rewards! ★★★★★ It's often difficult to get our kids to reference our face, especially the eyes. The items for purchase are very cool and can be moved/ resized/ repositioned in lots of ways."
"Fantastic ★★★★★ I think the way this game is set up to 'tap into' the special interest of the child and motivate them to play and improve their eye contact skills is ingenious. When not playing the steam train version of this game, my son loves to play with the cars. As a parent it is great to have a second version he is willing to play, when the first one has become stale. This way we can switch play between new and they both become 'New' again. Well done fizzbrain."
(From parent 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 car repair shop, complete with 5 different rooms. Numerous items - such as cars, repair tools, and other auto products - 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!
