Abstract: Current research suggests that autistic children are drawn to robots and are likely to benefit from robot mediated interventions. However, many autistic children from resource constrained environments have not benefited from robot enhanced therapy due to the high costs associated with the development and deployment of social robots. This paper presents the implementation of a novel low cost robotic assistive technology for children with autism to aid caregivers in their classroom activities. RoCA is a medium sized humanoid robot which has been equipped with motion, speech and interaction capabilities to encourage the children to learn through play
