Robots Play A Compelling Role In Facilitating Learning By Augmenting Teachers, Specialists, And Parents’ Instruction.


Robots are uniquely positioned to provide educational therapy to children and adults with special needs. Robots offer a non-judgmental peer who they can open up to and engage with. Studies have shown children on the autism spectrum engaged with robots over 75% more of the time then with a therapist alone.

Robots can help increase attention spans, verbal communication, social emotional understanding as well as self-regulation techniques. Human beings consciously and subconsciously project social queues such as micro expressions, vocal tone and body language which can be overwhelming and confusing to those on the spectrum, robots do not. The demand for therapy solutions is growing and Robots such as NAO, MOVIA and Kebbi can help therapy providers reach more people with deeper and more meaningful sessions.


The proprietary WOZ Teacher’s Aid System by    MOVIA robotics blue logo supports interactions and engagement with special needs, particularly autism, ensuring simple, consistent lesson delivery.
