Let's Face It 2.0 is an innovative scrapbook app, developed by a group of researchers at the Centre for Autism Research Technology Education at the University of Victoria in Canada, that makes it easy for users to identify and learn faces as well as recognize emotions of people in the lives of children on the autistic spectrum.

The tablet app allows children suffering from autism to create an interactive album of names and faces. The app also features unique games that train better facial recognition in an interactive fashion.

Not only does the Let's Face It 2.0 scrapbook app enable autistic people to communicate and store memories a little better, it also gives parents and educators the ability to create scrapbooks from people and objects important to children's lives.
