Utility of Social Robots for Promoting Joint Attention in Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities
Social robots are toy-like creatures that respond to young children’s nonverbal and verbal communication. They have been used with young children with disabilities to improve their communication skills.The Orelena Hawks Puckett Institute is conducting a study about using social robots to help young children with disabilities interact with other people. We want parents to tell us whether they think their child would enjoy and benefit from interacting with any of the four robots shown here.
The Survey has ended. Thank you if you were one of our participants
We are recruiting parents of children with Autism, Down syndrome, or attention-related difficulties.
Each parent will view short video segments of each of the four social robots and then answer eight questions about each of the robots.
The video segments and evaluations will be shown online through the link above.
