The Package for Autism
Cute & Expressive
By having an expressive face and upper body movements, QTrobot imitates emotions and social situations and teaches skills related to recognizing, understanding and regulating emotions. QTrobot facial expressions are designed to be simple, exaggerated and easy to understand and it makes the first steps toward learning emotions and social communication easy to take for children with ASD.
QTrobot has a graphical interface running on Android, allowing autism professionals to have full control of the session. The easy to use nature of the interface allows users to instantly learn how to use QTrobot and create educational applications based on the methods and materials that they have been using on daily bases. Integrating QTrobot doesn’t require any modification in the way that professionals used to teach.
QTrobot has pre-programmed educational curriculums which are the results of many years of research in the field of autism training. These curriculums focus on different sets of skills required to build autistic children’s capacities to be more independent and socially interactive. Autism professionals can gain free access to these curriculums, as well as further design their own on the graphical interface. By increasing the dialogue between scientists and therapists, QTrobot seeks to optimize care for children with autism.
