Australian EdTech startup Dystech raises $290K to develops its dyslexia screening platform

Dystech is an Australian EdTech startup responsible for developing a dyslexia screening technology for the early detection of learning differences.  Their main product is Dyscover which is an all-in-one literacy measurement platform that accurately analyses 6 critical aspects of reading. The EdTech platform combines 2-hours of paper-based assessments into 10 minutes, making it easy for schools and literacy professionals to perform reading assessments.

The Australian EdTech startup has successfully raised $290K to further develop this platform and make it available to schools and allied health professionals worldwide. The use of AI facilitates more accurate dyslexia screening and ongoing reading assessments.

Additionally, Dyscover’s norm is based on thousands of data points collected from over 2,500 individuals. Schools, government agencies, and allied health professionals worldwide can use the tool to support their students.

Dystech’s team of experts view learning differences as an “alternate way of thinking.” Students with learning differences can find new ways to hone their strengths and surpass their expectations using Dystech’s platform. The evidence-based platform comes with several advanced features.

Dyscover also offers collaboration features that facilitate teamwork. Team administrators can add or remove members at any time. The security features of the platform ensure that the data is safe from unauthorised access.

We have several goals, but our sole mission is to help people with learning differences identify their talents through the power of artificial intelligence. We aim to empower educators and literacy professionals with efficient and accessible assessment tools…Right now, we have literacy professionals with over 400 children on their waiting list. By reducing the 2 hours spent on reading assessment to 10-minutes, we are empowering them to support even more struggling students. Hugo Richard, CEO of Dystech
