Studies have provided evidence that interventions with Socially Assistive Robots (SARs), can help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) participate in activities that demand cooperation and communication skills. The purpose of this article is to present the benefits from the robot assisted interventions (Daisy robot) in the development of social skills in children with ASD. The held research took place in Greek Kindergarten and Elementary schools, during which six children with ASD participated in triadic activities, with and without the assistance of Daisy Robot. According to the data analysis in three of the four skills that were observed before and after the interventions with the robot (activity in a group, turn taking, and information) statistical significant differences emerged.
