Robotics social clubs for autistic students
During 2014, Robotics Social Clubs were initiated by Brisbane Catholic Education staff to address the issues associated with building the pro-social learning skills of students verified as having autism. The impetus for this approach was in response to the frustration of educators identifying often subtle gains made by students when attending targeted clinical social skills interventions outside of the school environment. In addition, social skills reportedly acquired by these students within the intervention contexts did not appear to generalise to the school-learning environment.
