Robots help children – level 2

30-04-2021 07:00

There are special robots which help children with autism. Autism is a disorder which makes it very difficult for a person to communicate with other people. Also, a person with autism does not understand many social situations.

People with autism need structure in life and they do not understand quick changes. Robots can make the lives of these people easier. Children between 3 and 18 years learn to solve conflicts through role play. Role play means that they play a role of somebody else in some situations. This way children learn how to behave in real life.

More than 1,200 children used the robots since 2015 and the result is great. The parents are happy because most children can communicate better. They even ask other people simple questions which is something what they could not do in the past.

Difficult words: disorder (a problem which affects someone’s mind or body), structure (the way that things work or how they usually are), conflict (a big problem between people).
