New Free Download: Eye Contact Song

I typically don't like to push teaching eye contact, as I've ready many books and articles written by people with autism that they are able to focus better and feel more comfortable when they are not looking at a person's eyes. However, there are certain times where I feel it is appropriate for students to make eye contact (at least briefly), perhaps becoming more comfortable with it in the process. One of these time is when greeting others. I have found that using a song to teach this skill has been very helpful and enjoyable for my students. I typically sing the sing, while they look at the pictures, immediately before we practice the skill.

Here are the songs:
Version 1 (Less Visual Prompts):

Version 2 (More Visual Prompts):
