SpEd@home, the Mumbai-based EdTech startup that brings special education products and services to home, has marked its second anniversary on 25th September 2022.
In these two years of redefining equitable education for children with differential needs, SpEd@home has expanded its footprint globally. It now has its presence in 7 countries, has supported over 100 schools, trained over 1000 educators, and provided services to over 2000 children. The startup boasts of a network of over 200 global experts and innovative learning management system.
As part of its second-anniversary celebration, SpEd@home has introduced its all-new learning management system – SPEED 2.0 platform – to deliver special education services to children. SPEED 2.0 is an AI-based platform that makes special education solutions accessible and affordable. It can comprehensively manage any child with special needs between the ages of 6-13 years, with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, ADHD, etc.
SpEd@home’s SPEED 2.0 platform is designed to help children with special needs achieve foundational literacy and numeracy, ensuring an effective improvement curve in their academics. The platform is also designed to ensure that children are provided services as per their specific needs.
Unique features of SPEED 2.0 platform include:
- Identifying the competency of the child.
- Identifying the gaps in the achievement of the foundational literacy and numeracy of the child.
- Delivering assessments way faster than traditional assessment tools. Assessment is an important step before initiating any therapy program.
- Curating an individualised, tailored customized program for every child.
- Providing a multi-sensory environment.
- Engaging and interactive worksheets.
- LIVE sessions with experts, therapists, and special educators.
Speaking about how its platform helps children with differential needs, Dr. Dhaval Mody, Founder & CEO, SpEd@home, said,
“We have seen that every child learns differently, a child may be a visual learner, auditory learner, or kinaesthetic learner. A multi-sensory environment has been provided within the application to ensure it meets the requirement of every child. Rich media content makes sessions most engaging. Post sessions, downloadable worksheets can be downloaded by parents and the child can work on it. Similarly, we provide them with a live worksheet which is interactive. They can either access it on their mobile or on their laptops ensuring they are engaged and are getting adequate practice. The Speed platform not just manages the customised pathways of the child but also tracks his learning curve.”
Supriya Das, Co-founder, SpEd@home, added,
“Having worked in the field for more than 28 years, we were able to get support from experts and we built our version 1.0. Soon we realized the difficulties in scalability in terms of the time taken by the application, and engagement available for the child. We, therefore, devised SPEED 2.0. This is a global revolutionary product which will democratise education and ensure better access to special education globally.”
Explaining further about SPEED 2.0 Platform, Aysel Engineer, Co-Founder, SpEd@home, said,
“SPEED 2.0 Platform has proven to be a robust delivery platform for special education solutions. Along with a seamless learning experience, SPEED 2.0 is also fast and effective when it comes to results and reports. Assessments through this platform are delivered within an hour, 30 minutes – to be precise. For therapy, SPEED 2.0 allows us to keep the activities engaging and interactive. Children are going to enjoy their experience with SPEED. This platform is also effective in teacher training as well as providing an online Resource Room for schools. We are soon to add more features to this platform, making it a one-stop solution for all special education solutions.”
