Robot that may help understand kids with autism

Scientists in the United States have developed a robot called Russell to learn about children with autism.

Russell can interact with autistic children and learn about their development. He plays games and makes eye contact with them as well.

Children with autism have difficulty leading a socially active life and have communication barriers.

Scientists hope that Russel will help them understand and handle kids with autism more sensitively.

A lot of research needs to be done to understand the diagnosis, treatment, and basic learning for children with autism.
