Social robots in support of children with autism
Supporting children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a challenge for any mentor. Academic studies show promising results in the use of social robots, but this is often technology driven and not based on practice.
In this project, knowledge and experience is to be built up in six testing grounds about how mentors can use social robots to support individual guidance processes and group activities.
