Robot Intervention Study

Principal Investigator: Joshua J. Diehl, Ph.D.

This study is examining the utility of social robots for enhancing social skills treatments for children with autism spectrum disorders. This new project has been featured by Notre Dame News. We are currently in the piloting stage, and we are in the process of identifying families that would be interested in the next round of the study. Children with a diagnosis of Autism, Asperger syndrome, or PDD (of all ability levels) between the ages of 6-12 may be eligible for the study.
