Special Robots for Children with Special Needs

The Puckett Institute is conducting a study on the use of social robots to promote joint attention in children with special needs. Socially interactive robots are being used with children with special needs to improve their interaction and communication skills. We are interested in evaluating the appearance and function of these robots to determine their practicality for home use. In this study, parents of children with special needs will view short video segments of four social robots and answer 8 questions about each robot’s general appearance. Your answers are completely anonymous and you can quit at any time. The entire survey can be done online and takes less than 15 minutes. Any parent of a child with special needs can participate. The study is directed by Carl Dunst, Ph.D. For more information, please go to our website, our facebook page, or contact Jeremy Prior by phone at 800.824.1182 or by email at jprior@puckett.org.
