HONG KONG, April 22 (Reuters) – A Hong Kong professor has developed an educational programme using role-playing robots to help children with autism improve their social skills, part of an initiative adopted by non-profit groups and schools.

The programme, Robot for Autism Behavioral Intervention (RABI), is designed for people with autism between the ages of 3 and 18, and aims to help them be more social and to resolve issues such as conflicts and bullying.

Catherine So, associate professor of educational psychology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, told Reuters more than 1,200 children have used the programme since its 2015 launch.

“Individuals with autism have low motivation to interact with others, and hypersensitivity to the world around them,” So said. “So we use the social robots to teach them social skills in order to reduce their anxiety.”

The robots engage the children with role-playing and verbal interaction. A typical class involves two small robots acting out social scenarios on a table top, helping the children see the difference between appropriate and unacceptable behaviour such as tantrums or screaming.

Muse Wong, 41, said her 5-year-old daughter has been in the programme for seven months and her social and communicative skills have improved vastly.

“She has started to have some degree of social life”, Wong said.

After interacting with the robots, the children are encouraged to try out their social skills with a human tutor.

More than 20 non-profit groups financed by governments and public schools in Hong Kong and Macau have adopted the programme. So hopes the project will help fight against exclusion.

“We believe RABI can help children with autism improve their social and behavioural skills, and in turn enhance the quality of their life”, she said.

香港中文大學(中大)教育心理學系副教授蘇詠芝教授近日獲國際自閉症研究學會(International Society for Autism Research,簡稱INSAR)委任為「國際領袖」(Global Senior Leader),作為香港的唯一代表,她將負責推動本地與國際研究機構的合作,推動全球自閉症研究。

據政府統計,過去十年本港確診自閉症的學童人數顯著上升,2018至19年達到近一萬人,衍生不少學童社交及情緒問題。蘇詠芝教授一直專注研究兒童的語言及認知發展,尤其是典型兒童與非典型兒童利用手勢(gesture)表達的發展情況。她發現自閉症兒童對於手勢的了解和適應能力偏低,於是集中這方面研究。

在2015年,蘇教授開展一項社交機械人計劃,為自閉症兒童專門設計介入治療方案。使用社交機械人協助教育自閉症兒童,在醫學或特殊教育領域均為重大創新。透過機械人重複的情境演繹,改善兒童的行為及情緒表現,至今已服務超過1,200名3-18 歲香港自閉症兒童。在2019年,蘇教授聯同她的同事陸秀霞博士,在中大可持續知識轉移服務基金資助下成立社企,將多年的研究心血帶到社區及學校,幫助更多自閉症患者。

蘇教授表示:「我十分榮幸獲選為INSAR香港區的代表。在『國際領袖』兩年任期內,中大將作為研究基地,積極推動及帶領本港、以至整個亞太區的自閉症研究及學術交流,特別是建立自閉症行為及社交溝通數據庫,期望可以為每位自閉症人士提供合適、甚至是度身訂造,有研究實證支持的介入治療方案。」

關於國際自閉症研究學會

國際自閉症研究學會在2001年成立,其宗旨是推動全球與自閉症相關的頂尖學術研究,改善患者及其家庭的生活。學會每年均會舉辦國際自閉症研究會議,2019年更成立國際領袖委員會(Global Senior Leaders Committee),邀請不同國家及地區的頂尖學者加入,組成國際網絡以促進交流協作,推動自閉症學術研究。
