EduBot is a complete educational product implemented by a humanoid robot that delivers developmental instruction modules to teach critical functional skills to children with physical, mental, or developmental disabilities. The product is based on the well-known NAO robot that has qualities that are very well-adapted to the needs of special education. Scientific findings report that children respond very well to small and friendly humanoid robots such as NAO, helping and teaching them certain skills, making intervention more accessible. Until now, current NAO solutions were not available in Greece due to the lack of Greek language support as well as to the absence of both available schemes and educational games tailored to the Greek psychoeducational needs.
