3-minute social skills: Eye contact

We decided to do a course on social skills, entitled 3-minute social skills course for autistics, comprising of short videos/podcasts of about 3 minutes. With such limited time, of course we will not get deep into the subject matter, but each video will give a few tips on one aspect of social interaction.

3-minute social skills

So here is our first video, on eye contact.


We would LOVE your feedback.

We went with audio and images so as to prevent overstimulation, as some autistic people have suggested.

You can subscribe to our Youtube channel to get notifications, or frequent this website, where we will also keep you up to date on any videos/podcasts we publish.
