Robot Helps Sick Teen Attend High School
The technology, called VGO, is mobile and has a small video screen that allows Lyndon to see what's happening in the classroom and interact with students and teachers.
Sheri Baty, Lyndon's mom, states, "When he's able to be in there, and hear what everyone's opinion is, plus the teachers, and hear all the classroom discussion, he gets that. That's incredible to see and see in his eyes. That's invaluable as a parent to see he's getting that."
Teachers are thrilled to watch Lyndon improve academically, and the teen's happy that his social life is likewise getting a boost.
"My best friends were my parents. No offense against them, but I want other friends," Lyndon said.
