Robots4Autism is dedicated to improving the lives of those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and others who face social and emotional challenges. By partnering with school districts, individuals, foundations, and corporations, RoboKind can bring their innovative, evidence-based curriculum to school systems around the world.

The program’s remarkable impact on learners with ASD can already be seen at a few schools:

The McCarthy Teszler School in Spartanburg, South Carolina – provides services for approximately 240 special education students, 90 of whom are on the autism spectrum.

KIPP Truth Elementary School in Dallas, Texas – a college prep school that has set independent learning and self-management as primary goals for all students.

As shown in the case studies, students who have passed through Robots4Autism have demonstrated meaningful and significant progress toward their Individual Education Program (IEP) goals. In some instances, learners with ASD are able to rejoin regular classes and even develop new friendships with their peers.

The long-term goal, as it is with all learners, is to participate fully in society and pursue a vocational career of their choosing. By providing students with the opportunity and access to Robots4Autism, educators have a powerful tool for use in teaching those with ASD.

We’re honored that so many school districts and therapy centers use Robots4Autism to teach social skills to their students. Take a look at how just a few of them are using Milo the robot to increase the learning performance of students with autism.


The Robots4Autism curriculum and its delivery by Milo the robot is based on research and best practices that show that children with autism are often more comfortable and engaged with robots than when working with a human therapist alone.
