171: Dyslexia awareness and how technology can help
Aimee Cave is a current practising SENDCO in East Yorkshire with sustained experience of creating good provision in her school, including orchestrating the school becoming the first ADHD friendly school in Yorkshire. She also runs her own SEND Consultancy business. Aimee has completed her NASENCO Award, is an Accredited Attachment Lead and has been trained by Whole School SEND in supporting other schools to review and improve their SEND provision.
As part of her work in school Aimee started using (and then working with) Lexplore Analytics.
Lexplore Analytics combine the latest in both AI and eye-tracking technology with the “human touch” of good teachers. By analysing correlations and patterns in eye movement data, our machine learning models are able to quickly and objectively determine reading attainment. Some of these patterns might even elude most human beings or other computer programmes, therefore, their introduction into the classroom can help offer teachers an entirely different perspective when it comes to reading, as well providing the valuable information needed in minutes.
