Samsung launches “Look at Me” app to help Canadian families living with autism

December 22, 2014 8:05am

Samsung Canada has teamed up with Autism Speaks Canada to develop an app called ‘Look At Me.’ An interactive camera app, it is designed for kids with autism to help improve eye contact, read facial expressions, and express emotions.
The app has different ‘missions’ and levels that are aimed to keep kids occupied by offering up points, various rewards, and visual or sound effects to keep children engaged. Samsung stated that the recommended time to use ‘Look at Me’ is 15-20 minutes each day.

‘Look at Me’ will be available starting December 23rd and is compatible with Samsung Galaxy Tab S, Note 2, Note 3, Note 4, Galaxy Tab 3, Galaxy Tab 4 and Galaxy Tab 5, and Zoom 1 devices.
Samsung Canada, as part of the Look At Me Project, is donating 200 GALAXY Tab S devices with the app preloaded to 200 Canadian families living with autism.
