This article is talking about how a robot can be able to help develop social skills in autistic children. I think this could be a breakthrough and it could help many autistic children Around the world. If the robots were able to become more well known and cheaper to create,this could be a very helpful tool in dealing with autism For all kids despite financial differences.
