Sharing insights and results on involving professionals on interventions using robot KASPAR for children with autism spectrum disorder"

This talk was given on 23rd March 2016 by an external speaker, Claire Huijnen from ZUYD University in the Netherlands.

In The Netherlands, over the past two years quite a number of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) professionals and other experts have been involved to build up knowledge on possible interventions using KASPAR for children with autism. This is work is done in the context of the project "Social Robots in Care" of which the University of Hertfordshire is a consortium member as well. Results of two rounds of focus groups and a questionnaire will be presented during this talk. More concretely we aim to give an overview of the therapy and educational objectives that professionals work on with children with autism and their expectations of where robot KASPAR might contribute in a meaningful manner in their day to day work.
