Development of a Home Accompaniment System Providing Homework Assistance for Children with ADHD

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 1307)

Abstract

This manuscript presents a system for homework assistance for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - ADHD. This system consists of a robot and a set of smart objects constantly monitoring the child’s activities during the performance of his tasks. The design of this system is focused on creating a robot-child relationship. It is possible for the child with this type of disorder to acquire the different capacities that allow him to carry out his tasks independently and effectively through short instructions and different methodologies (such as short physical exercise). Besides, it is a support tool for parents and therapists to better comprehend the behavior of their children and patients, respectively. This system allows a better understanding of the patient’s clinical characteristics, his evolution, and the therapeutic options that may have a greater effect on him. This project is focused on the implementation of an information processing software and a User Interface UI for the Atent@ robot. Thanks to the software the robot is provided with many functionalities for inter-acting with the child. This system is based on IoT architecture. Both the robot and the smart objects are connected to a Realtime Database so that the data can be processed and shared with parents and therapists in real-time through a mobile application. This work shows the entire design and implementation of this software as well as the functional tests and their results.
