Abstract

The contribution presents the results of a pilot study which involved a child with autism spectrum disorder (high functioning) in an intervention designed to improve the development of social and mentalizing abilities through the robot NAO. The experimentation was designed by the University of Macerata (Italy) and developed in 2019 with the support of the RobotiCSS Lab of University of Milan Bicocca (Italy) and the Cooperativa sociale BES - Onlus (Italy). After a brief description of the design and the structure of the activities the article discusses the initial socio-emotional profile of the child obtained with the TEC test and the analysis of prompts provided during the interactions. Those data will be used for further steps of project.
