Assistive Robots & Social-Emotional Curriculum

We improve outcomes for K-12 autistic students.*

Facially-Expressive, Assistive Robots.

From the beginning, we designed our robots to support and meet the needs of special educators as they guide their autistic students toward social-emotional mastery. 
 
Among the many movements they make, each robot replicates most human facial expressions and speaks 20% slower than most people. The embedded chest screen displays core vocabulary and icons, an important evidence-based practice.
 
Each of our robots also has a name, inspired by the values and commitments of the individuals we admire.

Inspired by Milo of Croton and our belief that practice, repetition, and progression builds mastery.

Evidence-based Curriculum That Builds Mastery

Developed in partnership with experts in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and based on a multidisciplinary developmental behavioral approach leveraging speech language pathology, occupational therapy, applied behavioral analysis (ABA) principles., our social-emotional curriculum is a manualized practice that maintains a high level of fidelity. With our facial-expressive robots, the program deploys 13 evidence-based practices, a key reason why we are endorsed by the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE).

The curriculum is broken down into 5 module groups. Each module group focuses on a core set of social skills. As students progress through lessons and extension activities, they build upon previous learnings, reinforce target behaviors, and master social skills.

Introductory Module Group

Objective: Meet Milo & Assessment

In this module, students meet the robot and play 6 games to determine prerequisite skills for curriculum.

Calm Down Module Group

Objective: Emotional Regulation

Here, student explore basic calm down tools before practicing & applying to social situations. This is one of our most popular modules and can be activated at any time by an educator during moments of emotional dysregulation.

Conversations Module Group

Objective: Understanding Conversational Dynamics

Over the course of several sub-modules, students learn common social skills students need know when having conversations including greetings, conversational dynamics, and leave-taking.

Emotions Module Group

Objective: Understanding Emotions

One of the most challenging things students with Autism face is understanding how they are feeling and, more importantly, how to communicate those feelings. Here, students learn about feelings & emotions, before mastering the communication of those emotions.

Situational Module Group

Objective: Understanding Social Situations

Mastering emotions and conversational dynamics are the basis for generalizing social skills to human-to-human interaction. Common social scenarios are played out while the student learns nuances of playdates & birthday parties and reinforces all of the skills they have learned in the program.

IMPACT
A Decade of Improved Outcomes

"Milo has become a very efficient tool in helping autistic students improve outcomes in terms of their social emotional learning, their speech pragmatics, and their behavior."

Dr. Lisa Raiford, Education Associate for Autism, South Carolina Department of Education

Students Master Social Skills.

In a 3-year study, South Carolina's DOE studied the impact of technology on improving outcomes for students with autism. Over 542 students working with 75 special educators across 15 districts completed more than 24,000 lessons. The results: 90% of students demonstrated mastery resulting in observable generalizing, transference to human-to-human interaction.

The Math Adds Up.

Supporting autistic students is expensive. Seeing those students miss their IEP goals is tragic. As demonstrated with McCarthy-Teszler, a specialized center serving 240 students from 76 schools, our programs not only improve staff effectiveness but also reduce the overall cost of support.

We Love Working With Students.

"My students like the calm down strategies, whether or not they are working with Milo. We have a quiet corner and I see them using the same strategies that Milo previously taught them. They are getting something from it; that is the most important piece."

"Today, our 10 robots have been able to work with 55 students across 10 elementary schools, serving as a highly effective therapeutic solution and intervention for improving the social, communication and behavior skills of students with ASD."

"It’s a different modality of someone else supporting the student. Milo says the same thing over and over, but Milo never gets frustrated, which even the most patient person in the world may have trouble doing."

"For even our most severe cases, Milo and RoboKind’s program helped our students make tangible progress toward their IEP goals. And, it only took a handful of lessons. The student response is more than promising."

"More children successfully engaged with the robot and the tasks than was initially predicted by researchers and parents. Robot-assisted intervention may be particularly valuable for those children who may not easily access other interventions due to their language or ability."
