Like Ishaan from the movie Taare Zameen Par, if your child is unable to read words correctly, letters appear upside down and his/her exam results are poor, then there is no need to worry. Now with the help of the app, the mental state of the children can be improved while playing. The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi has developed the app in collaboration with the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). Soon the app will be uploaded on play store.
The app created under AIIMS Pediatric Neurology Dyslexia Remedial Intervention Program will have eight modules. These will have eight stages of phonemes, consonants, three letter words, long short vowels, phonics, sight words, prefixes and suffixes. There will be thousands of photos or actions in all stages. Kids will have to move to the next level by identifying those photos or doing actions. If the child is not able to cross the said level then he/she will not be allowed to go to the next level.
According to Professor Dr. Shefali Gulati, Head of Child Neurology Division at AIIMS, the institute in collaboration with IIT, Delhi has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) based app for dyslexic children. It will be uploaded on play store soon. He said that with the help of this app, anyone can get children suffering from dyslexia to practice sitting at home, this app will be very helpful for such children. Please inform that a website was also launched regarding this from AIIMS.
This is how the app will work
In this app, children will be given many challenges. For example, in the phoneme phase, small words will be shown to the children and they will be asked to read them. The app will also read out the sound of the word to the child, so that the child can pronounce it along. Level by level the challenge will get tougher. Gradually, when the child comes to the final suffix stage, the child will learn a lot. After this process for about six months, a lot of improvement is expected in the children.
