This project is about the creation of a set of guidelines for ChildRobot Interaction (CRI) studies in cognitive therapeutic settings. We collected past experiences and lessons learned from previous relevant studies - relating to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – and transformed them into general guidelines. The main idea is to 1) motivate the scientific community to collect empirical quantitative data to further develop guidelines for child-robot interaction studies; 2) to give support and facilitate the adoption process to those practitioners implementing similar robot rehabilitation programs; 3) to ultimately help build safer and more effective personalized and engaging educational settings for children in their neurodevelopmental process.
