Optolexia makes it possible to identify children with reading and writing difficulties early on, so that schools can intervene at an early stage. That way, affected children need no longer fall behind in school, and schools save time and resources. The Company's method also gives a clear picture of children’s general ability to read and write in a specific school or school district.
Optolexia has developed a tool that can find signs of dyslexia in children at an early stage by reading eye movements. The method is based on research showing that dyslexia causes abnormal eye movements during reading. The tool consists of a tiny camera, which records students’ eye movements, which are then analyzed using AI based on eye movement patterns in children with and without dyslexia.
