Robot-assisted therapy in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) gained a lot of attention the last decade with promising results (Begum, Serna, & Yanco, 2016; Ismail, et al., 2019; Pennisi et al., 2016; Smeekens et al., 2018). Larger clinical trials are needed to establish robots’ utility in ASD interventions (Robinson, Cottier, & Kavanagh, 2019). As a first step feasibility studies are critical to ensure that the proposed robot-mediated interventions are effective and suitable in helping children with autism.
