ROBOKIND AND THE AUTISM SOCIETY OF AMERICA ANNOUNCE NATIONWIDE SCHOOL GRANT PROGRAM

While the costs of healthcare and education for children with autism often present barriers to effective intervention, the Robots4Autism School Grant Program aims to make this comprehensive, research-based curriculum accessible to schools. The Robots4Autism curriculum, delivered by humanoid robot Milo, incorporates eight evidence-based practices to support a learner’s generalization of appropriate social behavior and promote emotional understanding. In clinical studies, Robots4Autism has significantly increased engagement levels for students with autism.

Schools are invited to apply for the program to purchase the curriculum, and upon approval, a grant will be provided to complete the purchase, depending on the availability of funds.
