Milo the robot is highly effective at reaching and motivating children with autism who have difficulty interacting with humans or who are uncomfortable practising and using social skills with people. 

Milo is a humanoid robot from RoboKind, using Robots4Autism's research-based curriculum. He can teach children the understanding and meaning of emotions and expressions, and demonstrates appropriate behaviour and responses. 

Recent research has shown that children working with a therapist and Milo are engaged 70-80% of the time compared to just 3-10% of the time with traditional approaches. Children want to work with Milo again and again, which increases their opportunities to learn and their developmental success.
