I think they use it like, "Jimmy, we are going to put this robot next to your bed to watch you sleep until you stop having autism." I bet that shiat would clear up in one night.

blazemongr: Lunaville: I don't understand the apparent obsession some researchers have with trying to get autistic children to interact with robots. The children I am acquainted with, who have an autism diagnosis, interact with technology just fine. It's interacting with people that they struggle with.

Which is why the robot has a face.

Wouldn't it be better to have them interact with people? I hear those also have faces.

You know what is causing the leap in autism? Aspertame in diet soft drinks drunk during pregnancy. And the GMO corn in high fructose corn syrup isn't helping.
