'''Article:''' Autism Spectrum from Wikipedia

'''Notes:'''

  • ASD stands for Autism Spectrum Disorder (“spectrum” because effects vary among those who have it)
  • Because it's a spectrum disorder, treatment has to be tailored to the needs of the individual
  • Activities that autistic people engage in tend to be simple and repetitive
  • “Children with autism do not prefer to be alone”

'''Application to personal research:'''

Therapeutic exercises will need to be simple so the child can participate in them. Imitation games are common among other research experiments in the field of assistive robotics. What other games might be possible and useful? How about the robot performing an action as long as the child is behaving a certain way, or performing UNTIL the child behaves a certain way? Peek-a-boo is a common game for infants. TODO: Look into Fisher Price's list of Infant Games. Games that get a young child's brain going could possibly become valuable robotic games.
