In this paper, we present an interactive learning and adaptation framework that facilitates the adaptation of an interactive agent to a new user. We argue that Interactive Reinforcement Learning methods can be utilized and integrated to the adaptation mechanism, enabling the agent to refine its learned policy in order to cope with different users. We illustrate our framework with a use case in the domain of Robot Assisted Therapy. We present our results of the learning and adaptation experiments against different simulated users, showing the motivation of our work and discussing future directions towards the definition and implementation of our proposed framework.
