The needs of the autistic community are as broad and diverse as the people who make up this segment of the overall population. The area of personal robotics is just emerging as a viable option that offers unlimited potential for good in all our lives. The autism community could support its quest for inclusion in the job market, as well having more individuals on the spectrum living independent lives.
Having an apartment to live in, while earning a paycheck, is only a dream for thousands of autistic adults who desire more. Robots can remind them when the rent is due, when their medications are about to run out, or even dial 911 in case of a medical emergency.
