Les ateliers Rob'Autisme : Le robot extension comme médiation thérapeutique auprès des personnes présentant un trouble du spectre autistique.

Abstract : The use of robots as a therapeutic mediator for peolple with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a topic which tends to develop. Indeed, it is a promising method to promote the development of social skills. Many experiments are carried out currently. But in all existing approaches, the companion robot paradigm is used : the robot is programmed to present some pre-established behaviors. Rob’Autism Project propose an alternative approach : the robot is used as an extension for doing or talking things. The autistic subjects program it and therefore act on the social environment freely. This project includes ideas that they will be able to interact with the others without the robot. This thesis aims to understand the interest of this approach and asses the effects of participation on the social interactions. During two years, groups have been set up and analyzed with quantitative and qualitative methods. These analysis show that this approach favors the tendency to go towards the others and interact with them. This result is generalized outside the group.
