In this study, communication between humoid robots and humans for human rehabilitation in social environments is researched. People with disabilities such as patients, elderly, babies and infants need intense care in order to communicate socially. More specifically, using human-robot interaction (HRI), this framework can become a suitable solution for problems related to attracting and maintaining the attention levels of children suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Today, humoid robots find more communicative possibilities in social areas (such as schools, houses, hospitals and care homes) because of their structural compatibility.
