Michigan City schools are using a robot to help autism students and children with communication challenges.
Stacy Attar appeared on ABC7 Eyewitness March 30, 2022. Attar is the Michigan City Area Schools director of special education. She spoke about the program and how it is helping students.
The robot's purpose is to help students improve their communication skills. But it can also dance and play with students.
Attar added that teachers can choose a lesson from a tablet and the robot will then interact with the student. On a separate tablet, the student is able to respond and answer.
The district received a grant to help pay for two additional robots, which are shared between three elementary schools.
