Technology based interventions, such as computer programs and virtual reality, generally yield positive results when used with students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It is speculated that these devices may be successful because of their novelty and because they do not require the student with ASD to be socially interactive with a person. This project builds on the existing body of research and uses Root robots to enhance the communication/collaboration skills of children with special needs, particularly those with autism, through social interactions.
