‘One in every 68 children is affected by autism’

It is estimated that worldwide 1 in 160 children has an Autism spectrum disorder and 1 in 68 is diagnosed with autism itself. This estimate represents an average figure, and reported prevalence varies substantially across studies. Some well-controlled studies have, however, reported figures that are substantially higher.

The health-care needs of people with autism are complex and require a range of integrated services, including health promotion, care, rehabilitation services, and collaboration with other sectors such as the education, employment and social sectors. Autism may significantly limit the capacity of an individual to conduct daily activities and participate in society. It often negatively influences the person’s educational and social attainments as well as employment opportunities.

How can we help children with autism develop skills?

LuxAI is an innovative startup specialized in disruptive robotic solutions for education and health-care. Their solution is QT, a humanoid robot with the size of a four years old child. QT is capable of generating a wide variety of facial expressions, body gestures and behaviors to engage people in social interactions. The disruptive AI-based software technology allows you to instantly learn how to use our robots and create new robot applications to meet the unique needs of each individual and application.
