The use of telepresence robots to support pupils with medical and mental needs difficulties to remain engaged with their home school is a DfE funded research project involving 10 different medical alternative provisions from across the country. In this session, we will share the findings after our first year. There will be an opportunity to see the robot, AV1, in action, try them out, hear from pupils who have used them, and discuss how they could be used for the wider SEND population to support inclusion and reduce loneliness.
