The team “Tech Guys” from the ECE department of KCG College of Technology made it to the grand finale of the Smart India Hackathon under the theme ‘Smart communication/Education.’ They won the first prize for presenting a Learning Module for Dyslexic children, called ‘LEXI CHECK’. The team was one among the 106 teams which reached the grand finale. The team had their centre at CSIR –CEERI Pilani, Rajasthan. They were accompanied by Ms. Thyla Assistant Professor/ECE.

India has 35 million children who are dyslexic according to the registered data available. This module is aimed at helping these children who have trouble with words which makes reading, writing and spelling extremely difficult for them. This particular hardware kit created by the team is more like a game which encourages children between the age group of 5-14 to learn while playing with words. This module will be useful to screen the brain coordination with motor movements of the child and can also be used as remedial training kit. It uses multisensory approach, which is an efficient learning method. It not only screens dyslexia but also improves the condition.
