Covering Learning Readiness and Social Skills
The RobotLAB Autism Mobile Solution is an instructional system that provides support for schools and clinics serving children with special learning needs. The system consists of three components: a Robot, a Tablet through which the child interacts, and a laptop through which the teacher or other adult facilitates each session. This solution brings together the best robots for Autism: The NAO and the QT Robots that are engaging, durable and easy-to-use platforms. They are also complimentary in terms of features and the teacher/therapist can decide which robot to use based on each child's learning goals and personality.
Two Robots, one software environment: Both robots can be controlled from the same software for Autism which makes the teacher/therapist's use of the solution even easier.
The RobotLAB Autism Mobile Solution includes everything you need to make your program successful: equipment, software, curriculum, training and ongoing support from the RobotLAB team.
RobotLAB has the right robot storage to keep your equipment safe and charged. Our RobotLAB smart cart makes it simple to charge your robots when they're not being used, and they're all easy to move from classroom to classroom.
NAO has qualities that are extremely well-adapted to the context of special education: he is engaging, predictable, tireless, but also multi-interactive. NAO is humanoid technological interface who naturally attracts children. He helps to create communication bridges between the child and the people around him. He is easy to interpret, helps to reduce the children's anxiety, and minimizes the risks of over-stimulation.
NAO offers constant encouragement and never tires of repeating instructions. This helps to win the child's trust who will be happy to pursue his efforts. Whether through touch, voice or vision, NAO also offers an extremely wide range of possible interactions.
QTrobot is designed to be an engaging and easy to understand tool for children with autism. QTrobot shows facial expressions, gestures and body language and also talk with children.
QTrobot delivers the educational sessions and stimulus in a way that is more understandable for children with autism and provides learners with a controlled environment to practice social and communicational skills. Every time QTrobot presents the sessions exactly the same, so children can feel more safe and relaxed.
QTrobot never gets tired or frustrated and it can repeat sessions over and over again, until the child masters each skill. By helping kids with autism improve their social and communicational skills, QTrobot opens new doors toward children’s future academic and social success.
Woz Software by Movia Robotics is an easy-to-use, highly customizable framework for providing therapeutic activities and academic content to special needs students. The software is compatible with both NAO and QT robots, which makes the management and control of both platforms even easier for the teacher/therapist.
The software enables robots to interact with and engage children with special needs, particularly Autism, as well as typically developing children. The WOZ Teacher’s Aid system ensures simple, consistent lesson delivery in a turnkey solution. The dynamic system is able to meet the day to day needs of students and lead them through educational activities.
The software includes three main modules:
Each lesson can be customized to meet the cognitive level as well as the participation level of the child. To ensure that the software is easy to use it has been designed in collaboration with teachers and therapists. Our system provides a base for interaction, communication, and collaboration. It provides activities that promote social and cognitive engagement. It facilitates a positive learning environment by dynamically leading children through activities using evidence based prompting and instructional design.
All lessons have been created by certified specialists who have hands-on experience teaching children on the autism spectrum. Specifically, the lessons are designed to give a well-rounded capability to the teachers and therapists serving the special needs community. Each lesson helps with social skills, learning readiness, pragmatic communication, and/or academics and skills for daily living.
The curriculum supports the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles. Each activity can be personalized based on the learning goals, motivations, and individual personality of each child. An example of the available lessons in the curriculum include: Working in a group, Staying focused, Listening, Sharing ideas, What to do during a fire drill, How to ask for a break from the group appropriately, How to stay focused when Nervous, Listening for Meaning (academic, etc.), What specific ideas are not appropriate to share and when, Lock down drill, Reading key words in a text to follow directions (academic), Following directions, Recognizing emotions, Saying Hello and Goodbye, Simple prepositions, etc.
