Examination of Interface Designs Which Maximize Communicative Output in Disabled Children Using an Augmentative Communication Device during a Robot-Controlled Play ScenarioDownload
The purpose of this study, which is part of a larger interface design study, is to expand on evidence suggesting that the use of robotic play with disabled children who have a decreased ability to play, may promote the development of their motor, cognitive and linguistic skills.
Typically developing children learn and develop their cognitive, language , social and motor skills by interacting with their environment. This includes playing with toys and physically manipulating objects. Children with physical limitations may not be able to fully explore their world in...
everal studies have demonstrated the potential of robots as assistive tools for play activities. Through the use of robots, children with motor impairments may be able to manipulate objects and engage in play activities as their typically developing peers, thus having the same opportunities to...
