QTrobot Early Stage Development Curriculum for autism spectrum disorder and special needs education focuses on teaching skills related to the early age development of children in an engaging and step by step manner. The curriculum is organized around 4 main levels, based on Developmental Milestones defined by CDC covering the developmental age of up to 48 months. Each level is broken down into several units covering a variety of skills related to social, cognitive and language development. In each unit, QTrobot practices a new skill over a variety of stimuli and provides the learner with multiple trials to support skill mastery. The skills are then repeated in subsequent units to support the maintenance of the learnt skills.
In addition, QTrobot also actively involves the trainer in the sessions to facilitate the generalization of the skills and support the development of social interaction and collaborative play between the child and the trainer.
The application of this curriculum is not limited for the learners on the autism spectrum. Individuals with other learning difficulties can also benefit from it. The curriculum can be used for the learners in the pre-school, primary or secondary school age as long as their developmental age and current learning objectives match this curriculum. This curriculum can be used in special need education settings, as well as in mainstream schools to boost the learning potential and help the learners master social, cognitive and communication skills.
