What are the benefits of using QTrobot

For Children With Autism

Attractive and motivating:

Often for children with autism concentration and activities involving shared attention are challenging. QTrobot has an engaging character that attracts their attention efficiently and keeps them engaged.

Constant and predictable:

By showing consistent positive and patient attitudes, QTrobot reduces children’s anxiety and makes them feel more relaxed. The predictable nature of the robot gives comfort to children and prevents them from getting distracted.  

Simple, exaggerated and easy to understand:

QTrobot behaves in a very simple and understandable manner. Exaggerated and clear behaviors of the robot help children learn easier and gain confidence in their social abilities. 

Tireless and non-judgmental:

Children with autism need multiple repetitions to master every skill. No matter how many repetitions are required, QTrobot is nonjudgmental and never gets tired or frustrated. QTrobot Repeats everything until children master the skill.

What are the benefits of using QTrobot

For Autism Professionals

Higher engagement, better up take:

learning starts with engagement. Getting frequently distracted prohibit children from learning and makes the job of autism therapists and educators challenging. QTrobot works as a mediator to improve the engagement of children. As the engagement improves, therapists confront fewer challenges in teaching new skills to children and the outcome of their effort translates to faster progress in children’s abilities.

Less challenge, higher pay off:

Autism training involves frequent repetition of the sessions over and over again, causing high work-related burn out in human autism educators. With the help of QTrobot, educators can deliver a high quality and standard session by delegating the repetition to the robot and focus their energy on adding the soft touch of a human that can enhance the generalization of the skills.

Less paperwork, more interaction with children:

Therapists need to allocate attention to recording data during the session and then usually spend a large amount of time in analyzing the data and completing reports. QTrobot reduces the time-consuming paperwork by providing session analytics and generating reports. As the result, therapists can save their efforts and direct their full attention to the most important side of the session, the child!

Easy adaptation, no need to modify the way you practice:

QTrobot is a very flexible solution which can be easily programmed to adapt the way that autism professional work. With QTrobot there is no need to change the way you used to work and adapt to a ready-made solution. Therapists can program QTrobot to administrate the sessions by using the same materials and methodologies that they find effective.
