Robots4Autism

The Robots4Autism program is comprised of the following key components:

1. Powerful Curriculum built on Evidenced-Based Practices - Specifically designed to teach Social, Emotional, and Behavioral skills. The curriculum is also designed to help the learner to generalize socially appropriate behavior.

2. Milo - A humanoid robot that consistently delivers the curriculum and with whom the children connect in a way not accomplished by other humans.

40 - 60% of the students that are exposed to the Robots4Austism program will experience life-changing benefits in as little as 1 - 4 months; a few of which include:

 Rapid decreases in disruptions and meltdowns
 Increased understanding of human emotions and their meanings
 Dramatic increases in verbalization and attempts to use language and expand vocabulary
 Changes in behavior and interaction at home

The economic benefit being realized by school districts = 1/20th the cost to provide services, with greater results. 

  • Increase the number of hours of instruction Learners with ASD receive
  • Improve the effectiveness of instruction
  • Reduce the cost of high-quality 1:1 instruction

Therapists, educators, and para-professionals use Milo, Robots4Autism’s humanoid social robot, together with traditional intervention methods to help individuals with ASD reach their developmental goals. Innovative robot-generated instruction teaches social understanding and improves a learner’s ability to use social behaviors in natural contexts. The objectives of robot interventions include learning to pick up on emotions, express empathy, act more appropriately in social situations, self-motivate, and generalize in the population.
