Evidence suggests that children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) enjoy interacting with robots due to their simple and predictable behaviors. This project proposes using robot child interactions as an intervention tool for children with ASD to enhance their social, communication, and motor skills. Twelve children with ASD between 4 and 8 years of age will receive a 10-week robot child interaction protocol and be compared to a control group of children with ASD. Pre- and post-training assessments will include the PDD-Behavioral Inventory, Movement-ABC, and the Florida Apraxia Battery. It is predicted that children in the training group will demonstrate advances in general social communication measures as well as specific improvements in imitation, nonverbal communication, and motor coordination during robot-child interactions. The project results will determine the various parameters of treatment and the feasibility of long-term robot training for children with ASD. A robot could serve as an adjunct to a clinician to administer components of an assessment or treatment protocol with some level of standardization and may assist in the data collection process.
