As parents, we want our children to succeed in everything they do, and one of the most critical skills for success is reading. Unfortunately, for children with dyslexia, reading can be an incredibly challenging task. However, Hopalai, a Slovenian startup, has developed a solution to this problem with their app Kobi.
What is Hopalai and Kobi?
Hopalai is a team of parents, digital experts, and design thinkers, all passionate about improving the reading experience for children with dyslexia. They have created Kobi, a learning app that helps children overcome reading difficulties, such as dyslexia, by using color.
How does Kobi work?
Many children with dyslexia struggle with recognizing letters and words because of their similarity in shape. Kobi helps to address this issue by using color to help the brain distinguish between letters faster. By adjusting the color of individual letters, the app significantly improves decoding, comprehension, and motivation for the child, leading to reading fluency and a better understanding of what they have read.
Kobi also offers a unique learning experience for children, with personalized word sets that adapt to their individual needs. The app offers over 5000 words, including a complete English phonics system and a library of classic children’s literature.
What are the benefits of Kobi?
Kobi offers several benefits to children with dyslexia and their families. First and foremost, it helps children overcome their reading difficulties and develop a love for reading. It also provides parents and teachers with tools to track their child’s progress, ensuring they receive the support they need to succeed.
The app is also affordable and accessible, with a low monthly subscription fee and the ability to use it on any device. Kobi is available in English and Slovenian, and the company is actively working to add more languages to reach a broader audience.
Hopalai’s Kobi app has the potential to revolutionize how children with dyslexia learn to read. The use of color to help distinguish letters and improve decoding has already shown to be effective in helping children overcome their reading difficulties. With personalized learning experiences and affordable subscription fees, Kobi offers a much-needed solution for families and educators struggling to support children with dyslexia.
