RABI is developed based on the theory of special needs that pertain to autistic patients. Through social robots, RABI courses reduce the severity of autistic people from 3 to 18 years old and increase the social and behavioral functions of autistic people. So far, more than 20 local and Macau non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and (mainstream / special needs) schools have adopted RABI and benefited from it. Their positive comments include "greatly improved students' verbal and non-verbal communication" and "application of acquired skills to students' daily lives." The government has also identified that the RABI course is an innovative and successful autism support method. Since 2015, RABI has provided 950 people with autism aged 3 to 18 in Hong Kong and Macau with a large number of social and behavioral skills training, including self-care, social dialogue and vocational skills.
