How Milo can help autistic children:
1) Rapidly decrease disruptions and meltdowns:Milo’s Calm Down modules encourage patience and engage students in a non-threatening, friendly manner, reducing meltdowns and time spent out of the classroom or in isolation.
2) Dramatically increase vocabulary comprehension:Milo’s ASD curriculum was designed by experts to interact with students with varying degrees of communication skills and challenges. Help students anywhere on the spectrum express empathy and advance social skills: Milo’s facial cues guide students through understanding basic and complex emotions, as well as learning how to respond to facial expressions and body language.
3) Improve students’ academic performance and competence:Special education teacher Dr. Shannon Darst has observed students go from not making eye contact to regularly engaging with peers, educators, and therapists after working with Milo. Their improved social-emotional skills have translated to more time learning and engaging, which has led to better academic performance.
4) Reduce special education costs:One-on-one instruction is both crucial for students with ASD to succeed and nearly impossible for school districts to afford. Milo allows therapists, teachers, and paras to
provide more frequent, high-quality one-on-one instruction within the bounds of the department’s budget.
