ASrid, a non-profit organization, in cooperation with the National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD), is pleased to announce the launch of the T-Style Oral Reading Instruction App for the web.
Dr. Tatsuya Koeda, Director of the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine at the Research Center for Child Health and Development, and his colleagues have developed the T-style hiragana reading aloud instruction method, which aims to improve the reading difficulties of children with dyslexia. This application automates the decoding part of the two-step instructional method of the T-Style Hiragana Oral Reading Support using a computer. This application is designed to help teachers and guardians efficiently provide instruction to target children.
We hope this application will make it possible to teach reading aloud on more devices and improve the reading and writing difficulties of as many illiterate children as possible.
ASrid is cooperating in the development of this application free of charge. The top page of the app will include information on non-profit projects related to rare and intractable diseases (such as Rare Disease Day) that ASrid is involved in.
