Samsung’s Look At Me app for Android helps kids with Autism make eye contact

Those who live with autism often have trouble making eye contact with others and perceiving emotions in others. A new app from Samsung might help children develop these skills — and make it fun too.

Dubbed ‘Look At Me‘, the new app for Android uses smartphones’ cameras to help kids learn to read people’s moods, remember faces and express themselves with facial expressions and poses.

It also gamifies these activities with interactive missions and a point system, and can be completed over a week with 15-20 minutes of play daily.

The app is geared towards helping children with autism to develop their communication skills, so they are more comfortable in various social situations as they grow up.

Look At Me is available for free from Google Play.
