DREAM Lite: Simplifying Robot Assisted Therapy for ASD

by   Alexandre Mazel, et al.

Robot-Assisted Therapy (RAT) has successfully been used to improve social skills in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The DREAM project explores how to deliver effective RAT interventions to ASD children within a supervisedautonomy framework for controlling the robotic agent, which could decrease the burden on the clinicians delivering such interventions. In this paper we describe how to use in real life settings the experimental protocols that were developed and extensively tested in the DREAM Project, as well as their deployment and validation in a new ecological study conducted by clinicians.
