Teaching robot a hit with autistic students

(Continued)

HAVERHILL, Mass. —

Joubert said two robots — one red and one blue — that have been placed at Moody School are the city’s to keep.

They cost $17,000 each, according to the company’s website, but are currently available only to educators or researchers.

“We decided to let the school keep the robots because it would be unfair to take them away after the kids get used to them,” Joubert told the School Committee.

The NAO program includes an online feature for teachers to store information about specific students and to monitor their progress.
