I AM A UNIQUE CHILD"
CONQUERING NEW FRONTIERS OF AUTISM AND TECHNOLOGY
We Bring NAO to Life in autism & special education with
What is robot-mediated behavior intervention (RMBI)?
With 1 in 59 children impacted by autism, we can continue to advance the positive gains being made by robot-mediated behavior intervention.
ROBOTTECA is proud to offer the NAO robot for robot-mediated behavior intervention. The NAO robot has qualities that are extremely well-adapted to the context of special education: they are engaging, predictable, tireless, but also multi-interactive.
Their humanoid technological interface naturally attracts children. They help to create communication bridges between the child and the people around them. These leading robots are easy to interpret, help reduce a child's anxiety, and minimizes the risks of over-stimulation.
Meet NAO for RMBI
No one else offers the wide range of robot behaviors that allow non-technical educators, therapists, and researchers to use a humanoid robot in schools, therapy sessions, or laboratories.
NAO offers constant encouragement and never tire of repeating instructions. This helps to win the child's trust who will then be happy to engage and follow the instructions.
Even with no prior knowledge in software or robotics, the proven interfaces enables teachers and therapists to take control of the robot easily and at any time. Teachers, parents and Special Education teachers can exchange and easily update information unique to each child.
Contact us today to learn more about the robot and learn about their exciting results in the classroom.

"INSPIRE ME. I AM A UNIQUE CHILD." sm
One only has to experience firsthand the impact, joy, engagement and happiness that is expressed by a child with autism when they encounter and engage with a humanoid robot that is being attentive to them and THEIR actions - during what we define as a 'robot-mediated behavior intervention' (RMBI) session.
One only has to see the relief and comfort that emanates from a parent who all too often faces the autism challenge and struggle with limited resources, tools, and guidance. When you experience those moments you undoubtedly know that something is happening that is truly meaningful and you are making a real difference in a child's life.
We are committed to a creating significant impact in the world of autism intervention therapies and we believe that our humanoid robot is the landscape changing engagement tool needed to do just that.
We are the Sponsor and Host of the International Interdisciplinary Workshops for Robot-mediated Behavior Intervention(RMBI)
This is field of study is about real life experiences and practices using robot technology in autism that we were are proud to pioneer and lead.
Our Top Ten List of Discoveries
What have we learned thus far?
1. It seems that we are on the cusp of understanding that those with autism should not be classed as disadvantages. They are, by definition, autistic people, and should be seen and understood as such and not somehow categorized into a group that is labeled as disadvantaged.
2. Autism is a lifelong issue and not only 'a child' focused matter.
3. You cannot paint every autistic child as the same, or similar as the next. Just as each person cannot be classified as 'common' they too are each unique - just as we as people are unique.
4. That there is an observable and joyful outcome for children who have had the opportunity to engage with a non-threatening, 'tirelessly responsive' robot. The children like robots. It helps them become engaged, happy, and responsive.
5. The positive impacts sustain themselves even once the mediated behavior ceases.
6. The robots serve as a mediation element to help calm 'frustration and rage' moments - especially in school class rooms.
7. Fundamental learning is advanced.
8. We can learn and measure by observing the child's interactions and actually measure a child's positive engagement progress.
9. Robots can be used by non-technicians in a therapeutic manner.
10. Robots help 'unlock' children and will continuously improve as a behavior mediation platform.
