What is robots4autism®?Student and facilitator working with Milo the robot

robots4autism® by RoboKind® utilizes cutting edge facially expressive robots and tablet technology to deliver a curriculum addressing relevant social skills for school-aged children with autism. This curriculum employs the evidence-based practices of visual supports, social narratives, and video modeling. It emphasizes improving theory of mind to help with the understanding of emotions, relevant social cues, perspectives and appropriate responses. In addition, the curriculum facilitates coherence by providing multiple ways for the child to gain meaning about the social situation. The curriculum uses a consistent core vocabulary both within and across the lessons and utilizes visual supports in the form of graphic symbols which creates an auditory-visual connection to further comprehension. Embedded assessments document student progress and provide actionable insights into a student's trajectory.

Once the child has shown mastery of a skill within the robot-delivered curriculum, skills must be generalized to human interactions, both in structured and real-life activities. The Curriculum Guide in the robot4autism® package outlines suggested extension activities to support therapists’, teachers’ and parents’ interactions with the child subsequent to completion of each robots4autism® module.

robots4autism® is a comprehensive intervention program that uses purpose-built humanoid robots to deliver developmental instruction modules that teach critical functional skills.

  • The robot, Milo, creates a high-level of engagement between the student and the robot
  • Unlimited repetition of lessons that are 100% consistent
