Robot-Assisted Instruction (RAI) for Special Education


"Just a few weeks from starting this program, it has been such a positive experience to see my neurodiverse learners interacting with this robot assisted instruction in all different ways. The increase in joint attention and engagement during therapy sessions, especially near the end of the school year, is wonderful to observe. It’s a new tool that I’m excited to have in my school based therapy regimen."
