Abstract

This paper presents an observational study conducted on the premises of the Children's Rehabilitation Center with the aim to investigate the impact of the Robot-Assisted Therapy (RAT) on nonverbal children with severe form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Through our iterative evaluation process based on observations of three children and interviews with their parents, we continuously refined behaviors of a humanoid robot NAO that are now ready to be used for research on Robot-Assisted Therapy.
