Abstract
Social skills training of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is not an easy problem enough to typically spend a lot of time and repetitive efforts. As means of assistance, we propose and examine the feasibility of a robotic behavioral intervention system to facilitate social development of the children with ASD and relieve operational burden during training process. To this end, based on well-known behavioral treatment protocols, the robot system incorporates robotic stimulation design, recognition modules for human activities, and reinforcement procedure in the interaction scheme design. Using these configuration, it repeatedly perform a role of training eye contact and reading emotions targeted at preschoolers with a high functioning level in the planned training process. Through showing an advantage in a comparative analysis with control group taught by humans, we verified that the proposed system can contribute to evoke positive response of children with ASD and provide labor-saving effect on the clinical environment.
