QTrobot engages children with meaningful play-based activities based on evidence-based practices such as Applied Behavior Analysis. The expressive robot comes with an endless array of learning programs covering a broad range of skills related to social and emotional wellbeing, and language and cognitive development. Scientific and empirical studies show QTrobot is truly bringing added value to special needs education by improving attention and motivation and reducing anxiety and distraction (ref1, ref2).
“QTrobot is non-judgmental and offers a predictable environment for children to practice and gain confidence with social and communication skills before applying them in real world interactions. What makes QTrobot unique is that it is a child friendly technology that also fully involves the parent in the sessions,” says Dr. Aida Nazari, Head of Human-AI Interaction at LuxAI. “The robot creates a triangular interaction with the parents and their child and encourages the children to practice the skills with their parents. This opens the first door toward building skills that can be generalized to real world interactions.”
LuxAI has developed a full ecosystem to assist parents in actively participating in their child’s education and to further conduct supporting activities to encourage the application of the skills learnt from the robot to new environments. QTrobot package for home includes:
- Online support portal with video lessons for parents to effectively assist their child’s education through activities both with and without QTrobot. It also includes manuals with extra-curricular activities to help generalize the learnt skills.
- Analytics dashboard to help parents in monitoring their child’s progress on educational milestones, navigate the educational curriculums and create an individualized learning plan aligned with their child’s educational needs.
- Monthly support meetings to help parents assess their child’s progress and set upcoming goals.
LuxAI is an internationally acclaimed science-based company aiming to address the shortage of special education services worldwide. The company is pioneering the development of human-centered intelligent systems to make standard and evidence-based methods of education accessible for children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
