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.
