STAFF REPORT ISB: Samsung Electronics has introduced its latest initiative to help improve the lives of those with autism. The “Look At Me” app aims to help develop communication skills in children with autism, with a view to deepening relationships with those around them.
It is well understood that many children with autism struggle to make and sustain eye contact with others, something that could affect them socially as they grow up.
Through a smart device camera function, children can learn to read a persons mood, remember faces and take their own diverse photos. Seven fun and interactive missions keep the children engaged.
“Look At Me is a light, fun and game-like app that parents can play with their children to get them accustomed to making eye contact and reading peoples emotions,” said Chung Lyong Lee, VP Corporate Citizenship Group at Samsung.
