This is where ‘Dyscuss’ comes in. Dyscuss is an iOS and SMS-based intervention to assist with understanding and identifying the symptoms of Dyslexia aimed at middle-income and lower-income populations in urban and rural India respectively. These populations include teachers and parents of children, ages 6 and above who may display signs and symptoms of dyslexia. The application will be able to identify whether the user requires further formal testing by a qualified educational psychologist through a series of questions to which the user may respond to in the format of a conversation.
