Autism is defined by a specific set of behaviours. It can affect a person’s ability to interact and communicate with others. There are different degrees of autism, but some common behaviours associated with this disability include poor motor skills, delayed speech, difficulties with reasoning, and very narrow interests (introvert nature). These Signs are usually observed in the early childhood years. Many children with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) also suffer from other disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disability, or an intellectual disability. Recent research shows the connection between Autism and Robotics and how robotics could help in minimizing the symptoms and maximizing their abilities.
Recent research indicates the number of children with autism has increased considerably in Australia. As per the ASD Statistic, we discover 16.5 new autistic children each day. Children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience many difficulties in schools. These children need to learn how to interact with their peers, make friends, work, do activities with other children and solve problems in a natural and uncontrolled environment. This can be a difficult challenge for ASD children but using robotic technology, children will be able to practice these skills in a safe, non-judgmental area in a fun way.
There is no standard treatment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but there are many ways to treat them which could minimize the symptoms and maximize their abilities. These therapies differ from person to person and their nature. Children do recover from ASD if it is treated is done in the right way. In some cases, if the treatment is done in the right way it could greatly reduce symptoms and can help kids to enjoy their peers or interact with them.
Before any ASD treatment, one should be aware that there is a possibility for overlapping in symptoms between ASD and other disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), therefore it is important that treatment should focus on a person’s specific needs, rather than the diagnostic label. Different ways of treatment done for ASD are listed below:

Since there is no known cure for autism, several treatments can help autistic children to deal with the challenges associated with the condition. It cannot be 100% cured by any medication. But the good news is recent research shows a link between autism and robots. Several studies reveal that autistic children may learn better from robots than from human teachers. Robotics are helping autistic children in many ways. Interacting with robots can help improve the social, communication and motor skills of autistic children. They may find interacting with a machine easier since they have to focus on one aspect of communication.
Autistic children can find robots less intimidating than humans. Robots can serve as conventional therapy for children suffering from autism. Autistic children experience difficulties interacting with other people. They have trouble processing and understanding other people’s emotions. Autistic children may be more comfortable interacting with a robot than a human. Robots look like a toy and add an element of fun to the conversation.
We have started our course in one of the best schools in Australia Northern School of Autism– Lalor n Reservoir, where our trainers give full attention to all the students and make them feel comfortable. Our course is designed in such a way that it helps children to reduce shyness, reluctance, frustration, and boost confidence, social skills and self-esteem. They are good tools to encourage the acceptance of special education in a regular classroom setting. It is developing positive attitudes and perceptions of special education.
Our programs include workshops, summer courses, after school robotics and coding programs, and programming courses. It is suitable for beginners, advanced level learners and children of all age groups. Our courses are designed to deliver a hands-on, deep learning experience to everyone.
