Play is of utmost importance for child development. This paper presents a virtual assistive robot that enables children with disabilities to actively participate in play activities simulated on a computer screen. Children with and without disabilities participated in a feasibility study to assess if children have the same performance on play tasks using a physical robot and a matching virtual robot.
