Abstract

One of the most common disabilities in childhood is Cerebral Palsy (CP). This condition is strongly related to intrauterine pathologies, intrapartum complications, and the postnatal sequel. An important percentage of children with CP can present intellectual disability and motor impairments. For these reasons, it is essential providing early intervention plans for children with this pathology. However, nowadays in Ecuador, there are not exist tools to engage and motivate children performing rehabilitation activities through robotic assistants. To this aim, we present a methodological intervention proposal that uses robotic assistants, simulation environments (for practitioners and students), and uncertain reasoning controllers. During the robot's preliminary validation, we have obtained encouraging results in both laboratory tests and in the interaction with 43 experts.
