MiloMilo, a two-foot-tall humanoid robot, has proven to be very effective at reaching children with autism who have difficulty interacting with humans.
When autistic children are engaged and comfortable, they're better able to learn. Recent research found that children working with a therapist and Milo are engaged 70-80% of the time compared to just 3-10% of the time with traditional approaches.
Using Robots4Autism's research-based curriculum, Milo teaches elementary and middle school age children the understanding and meaning of emotions and expressions, and demonstrates appropriate social behavior and responses. Milo speaks 20% slower than an average human and has a limited range of facial expressions and is less likely to express emotions that get in the way of autistic children learning. Milo can repeat lessons over and over again without getting frustrated, saying things exactly the same way each time.
