We developed a software application, Read-Aid to help improve reading pattern in children with Dyslexia with visual processing problems. We hypothesized that after a dyslexic child’s interaction with our application, there will be an improvement in their reading speed and comprehension. We compared our results with existing masked-reading intervention approach. A between-group study was conducted with 15 children. Results were significant (p = 0.026) suggesting that our Read-Aid tool has potential as an assistive technology application.
