About The Look At Me App:
The Look At Me app aims to improve an individual’s ability to make eye contact. A multidisciplinary team of clinical psychologists, cognitive psychologists and psychiatrists have dedicated their participation in developing the app curriculum. The app is currently under clinical testing to verify its effectiveness through research.
The app keeps children motivated and highly concentrated by using the camera function of digital devices that often appeal to children’s interests. It also features a point system, themed missions, various rewards, and visual or sound effects to keep children engaged. Levels can be customized based on the children’s achievements. Each mission in the app requires interaction between caregivers and their children to encourage positive relationships and connections.
The recommended time to use the Look At Me app is 15-20 minutes each day. The app also gives feedback to parents on their children’s daily performance progress through a systematic caregiver dashboard.
