Motivation – This paper describes a platform that can be used by therapists to easily create treatment programs for ASD patients based on robotic systems. Research approach – Through extensive collaboration with treatment clinics, the needs and requirements of therapists are analysed and implemented in several design stages. Design – The basis of the platform is a combination of the humanoid mobile robot NAO (Figure 1) with a visual programming environment TiViPE. The end-user qualities of TiViPE extended with learning by imitation programming techniques allows therapists to create therapy programs without the need for extensive programming skills. Take away message – The successful introduction of autistic treatment programs involving robotics requires the ability of therapists to create and adapt the therapy to patient specific needs.
