We are a team of therapists, graphic artists, and engineers set out to provide children with learning disabilities a fun and productive education. Between 10% and 17% of children worldwide suffer from learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dyscalculia, and often only those with the most severe forms are eligible for the therapy they need. Our goal is to make therapy available to all children who need it through fun, engaging, and educational mobile games.
