Socially Assistive Robots are effective at supporting autistic children in a variety of different therapies. Therapists can control the robots’ motions and verbalizations to engage children and deliver therapeutic interventions based on their needs. We present teleoperation capabilities to support therapists in customizing therapy to their clients’ needs. Specifically, we introduce a documentation sidebar that aims to prime therapists using their clients’ documented needs, and a session summary report that helps therapists reflect on the session with the child. We present preliminary designs for these capabilities and describe future work to build upon them
