Robots help children – level 1

30-04-2021 07:00

Special robots help people with autism. Autism is a word for people who can be different. People with autism do not need to talk with other people. They can be quiet and shy. They feel things very deeply.

Sometimes people with autism do not understand how things work. They like order and clear ideas. It can be a problem in everyday situations.

People with autism usually do not understand jokes or irony. Special robots help children learn what to do in these situations. Children can repeat the situations many times. It helps them in real life.

More than 1,200 children use the robots since 2015. Parents are very happy. These children learn to speak more. They sometimes ask other people easy questions.

Difficult words: shy (when someone does not feel good with other people around), order (the way that things happen), irony (when you say something but you mean something different, and you say it as a joke).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
