Abstract

Social robots may be beneficial to educators working with autistic children in helping to monitor the children’s progress. To identify needs for measuring and tracking progress of autistic children, we conducted interviews with nine experienced educators in Serbia and the Netherlands who work with autistic children. Responses revealed educators’ needs to identify antecedents of notable child behaviour, to have standardised measures of social skills, and to understand child behaviour across settings. We present initial design concepts how social robots could be utilised to meet these needs.
