“Ability to attend to an object jointly with another person is an important prerequisite to learning to speak and interact socially.” - Dr. Vidya Bhushan Gupta.
This is the central idea behind ‘iLookAskNShow’ app. This app attempts to teach a child this skill of joint attention, particularly the use of finger and corresponding eye gaze to look, ask and show things.
This App has three sections Look, Ask and Show.
The ‘Look’ section is where the parent shows child to look at objects or things of interest.
The ’Ask’ section is where the child asks for things around.
The ‘Show’ section is the interactive one where the child is prompted to select object or visual.
This App is collaborative effort of Dr. Vidya Bhushan Gupta and WebTeam Corporation.

***About WebTeam Corporation***
Incorporated in 2005, WebTeam Corporation is a Somerset-based mobile application development firm that has pioneered the development of ColorsKit, an autism management toolkit comprising screening, assessment and intervention apps. ColorsKit helps parents, teachers, health care experts, researchers and other stakeholders worldwide efficiently manage the entire life-cycle of autism from infancy to adulthood and employment.
Apps for autism intervention are one of the key components of ColorsKit. These apps replicate individualized autism services on mobile devices, thereby making these necessary services available to the under-served population globally, especially in countries that lack the expertise necessary to tackle autism efficiently and in a cost-effective manner.
WebTeam’s proprietary technology was awarded by Verizon in the 2013 Powerful Answers Award competition. WebTeam’s enterprise solution addresses the entire life cycle of autistic individuals – from screening and education to building vocational skills leading to employment and improving opportunities for mainstreaming.
WebTeam’s holistic approach to autism management allows caregivers and other stakeholders to collect and share data efficiently, thereby fostering effective collaborations that will ultimately solve one of the world’s largest and growing developmental disorders.
