DADS (Doctors And Dyslexic System): a Web platform to diagnose and train children with dyslexia focused on word decoding

Online tools for dyslexic diagnosis and training are mostly free-of-charge, and tend to ask a series of auto-evaluation questions that will be automatically analyzed and give a result saying whether the user should, or not, seek medical attention, since these tools are not a medical exam or diagnostic. Other platforms consist on many exercises and tests for dyslexic people or with speech and language impairments, helping them in the training of the word pronunciation. These platforms are children-oriented, consisting in a game-based interface, not only because it has already been proved a positive correlation between video games and dyslexia [1] but because it is a motivational tool to help children to learn. However, there is a lack of solutions that allow doctors to register the evolution of their patients. In this article, it is presented the development of a Web platform that allows children to do exercises but also lets their doctors to keep track of their evolution through graphs and detailed statistics. This allows doctors to have every information on a digital format, disproving the need for tests normally done on paper [2], [3], [4], and not having to manually register variables, such as: time to complete exercises.
