 +<​u>'''​Article:'''</​u>​ [http://​homepages.feis.herts.ac.uk/​~comqkd/​Robins+aRoman04.pdf Robots as Assistive Technology - Does Appearance Matter?] by Ben Robins, Kerstin Dautenhahn, Ren´e te Boekhorst, and Aude Billard
  
 +<​u>'''​Introduction to paper:'''</​u>​
 +
 +An adult and an autistic child would play with a robotic doll, together. ​ For some children the doll would be fully covered (like the Theatrical Robot study) but for others it would be dressed as a normal doll.  Children accepted the plain, fully-covered doll quicker than the normally dressed doll - however, over time, both dolls were accepted.
 +
 +<​u>'''​Application to personal research:'''</​u>​
 +
 +It seems that both appearances are eventually accepted (if the object is obviously classified as a predictable toy) but that the more detailed the object is the more apprehensive the child will be <i>at first</​i>​. ​ If Pleo, or another robot, isn't quickly accepted by children, that doesn'​t necessarily mean that it won't ever be.  It might be good to break up TiLAR research into phases, like they did.
 +
 +<​u>'''​Questions:'''</​u>​
 +
 +* Is familiarization necessary? ​ It seems like it would be a good idea, to encourage children to interact with the robot, without it acting too unpredictable at first.
 +* <​i>​DOES</​i>​ appearance matter if both dolls are eventually accepted anyway? ​ It doesn'​t sound like it makes a significant different.
 +
 +<​u>'''​Additional notes from paper:'''</​u>​
 +
 +* '''​Triad of impairment'''​ was defined, again.
 +* It was mentioned that autistic children don't demonstrate much eye contact and don't get involved in interactive games much.
 +* They performed their research in three '''​phases''':​ familiarization (child becomes aware of robot), learning (child is taught what the robot can do), and free interaction (the child initiates play with the robot).
 +* They chose to evaluate '''​success'''​ based on the child'​s:​ eye gaze to, imitation of, touching, and proximity to, the robot.
