Theoretical Framework of Agent Assisted Treatment for ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)

Danyal Hussain Butt, Wasim Ahmad Khan


kids with Autism Spectrum problems (ASD) have conversation deficits and problems with social interaction. A lack of social conduct can bog down healing interventions and may lessen the potential to examine social talents. Robots had been shown to initiate proactive social conduct in youngsters with ASD. improvement of robot systems able to appearing as catalysts for social conduct in the context of ASD remedy is the need of contemporary era. A methodology and theoretical framework is being supplied here in this paper for a robotic system that can not only compare the effects and stage of ASD, however, can assist the victim consequently.
