The goal is specifically for children with autism and cerebral palsy at various locations to gain access to robotic intervention. Ten learning modules targeting at specific therapy outcomes have been developed for this system.(More)
This paper presents a method to carry out qualitative analysis when evaluating the interaction between child and robot in autism intervention. The technique consists of 24-items of behavioral assessment which was referenced to the Gilliam Autism Rating Scale-Second Edition (GARS-2). GARS-2 is a screening instrument used to identify and diagnose autism.(More)
Recent advances show that robots have unlimited potential to help the disabled community by providing physical support, social engagement and even co-therapy in collaboration with another human.
