Working on Eye Contact
In this clip, Sajid is participating in a one to one therapy session aimed at improving his eye contact and response to name. The therapist uses an object Sajid wants to bring his eyes to her face when she calls his name, thus pairing his name with the act of making eye contact. As she repeats the task, Sajid learns the association, looking to her face more immediately and automatically with each trial.
