Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) exhibit significant impairments in development in social relatedness, reciprocal social behavior, social communication, joint attention, and language learning.

Children with ASD have a preference for objects over people (Lombroso et al., 2009) in addition to superior nonsocial skills constructing and analyzing systems (i.e., computers and robots) (Baron-Cohen, 2005; Baron-Cohen, 2009).

Recent research suggests that despite individual differences in performance, children with ASD show more social engagement with a robot as compared to humans or other technological devices (Diehl et al., 2014; Bekele et al., 2013).
