"+me" Transitional Wearable Companion / ASD therapy support

+me (www.plusme.it) is an experimental device for the therapy of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Its purpose is to support the development of basic social skills, as eye contact, joint attention, social referencing. It is based on a soft, animal-shaped robot, which can potentially motivate the child to interact with a caregiver, during the therapeutic activities. +me is developed by researchers and expert therapists. Now it is in the clinical trial, but the project is not funded. We ask your help to keep it alive.
