A robot is helping autistic students at a Williamson County school learn.

The robot, named Milo, was donated to Poplar Grove Middle School where he's helping children develop social skills.

Milo is programmed to speak more slowly than humans and doesnt tire out repeating lessons.

After just a month, the kids call him their friend.

Poplar Grove Middle is the first school in Tennessee to test Milo in the classroom.
