The state of Texas recently announced the implementation of House Bill 21 (HB21), a state-funded initiative to provide its districts with evidence- and research-based programs and services for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Through this initiative, schools can help teach their students with ASD to tune in on emotions, express empathy, act appropriately in social situations, self-motivate, and reciprocate interactions. RoboKind, creator of Milo and robots4autism, offers schools and districts a solution that meets or exceeds the expectations spelled out in HB21.
RoboKind is providing language for school and district administrators to use to ensure that Milo and the robots4autism curriculum are included in their grant. Schools and districts that take advantage of Milo the robot and the robots4autism curriculum will also have access to data collection and reporting analytics, a facilitator manual, training, IT and related technical support, and school and district customer service support.
HB21 grant applications are due March 8, 2018.
