Right now, in order for children who have learning disabilities to learn effectively, they need a lot more tailored support than they’re able to access.

They’re 2 ways that they can currently access support:
- One is classroom teaching, but due to the number of children in their class and the constraints on teachers it’s not possible to give them the level of personal care attention they need in order to support them with that disability.
- And the second, speech therapists, are highly understaffed. They have a waiting list of up to 18 months, and a maximum amount of time per week of half an hour to 60 min per child.

So right now, if you are a parent of a child with a learning disability, someone like my brother in fact, then you are probably like on of the 300 parents we’ve spoken to, spending huge amount of time, around 9 hours per week, and your own personal cash in trying to compensate for the lack of support that is available to a child from the current institution fram...

Based on this observation, we've designed Lexiko to be a highly personalized, self-strengthening learning tool. And to do so, we’ve designed it based on 4 distinct steps:
- First, Jointly with the child’s speech therapist, and by using our ML tools, we are able to know exactly his difficulties and what he has to work on.
- Then, based on these inputs, we adapt specific exercises designed with speech therapists accordingly.
- Third, these exercises will be integrated into a larger arcade game, so that Lexiko always remains playful and not a constraint for the child.
- Finally, by tracking progress over time, Lexiko will be gaining knowledge and be able to fine-tune pathways for every child.

Recommendations

- Excellent team of two engineers with a clear right to win on the topic.
- Ambitious vision/mission: Helping children with learning disabilities is not an easy topic, but Wilmer and Hector have chosen a very smart approach combining gaming, data science and education.
- The problem they are solving is what we call "hair on fire". The traction they have gathered in less than 3 month is impressive and the product roadmap is strong enough to back their ambitions.
