Early detection allows us to provide support sooner, before challenges become too great. For students who struggle to learn, school can feel like a never-ending cycle of stress and failure.

Early detection and intervention allow us to identify a student’s strengths and challenges sooner to provide instruction that is responsive to their unique needs. We seek to innovate a novel, scalable, and efficient solution that leverages technology for an online assessment system that will accurately identify students at increased risk for learning and attention challenges at a very young age.
