Dyslexia Research: Searching for participants

With your collaboration, you would help our research immensely. The goal of our research is to contribute to the development of support tools for dyslexia in English. Screenshot 2017-02-22 17.05.54

Participants would have to play for 5-10 minutes the game MusVis (see Screenshot). This game explores how musical and visual elements have an impact on children with and, without dyslexia. We are looking for children between 7 and 11 years old (30 children with dyslexia and 30 children without dyslexia) during April. Only a desktop or laptop computer, headphones, and Internet are needed.

Please if you would like to participate – leave your contact details and we contact you with the study details. Duration only 5 – 10 Minutes.

 

The prototype was designed with the help of five children and five parents who tested the game and the results of the usability study have been presented this year at the research conference Web for all (W4A) in Australia in April.

Title: Prediction of Dyslexia from Maria Rauschenberger from Web Research Group (WRG)

In regards to the #ESCOLA (22 February 2017) the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) welcomes the polytechnic School at the Poblenou Campus of Pompeu Fabra University.

Maria Rauschenberger presented the new prototype of MusVis to around 100 students at the ESCOLAB 2017. MusVis is a research application and aims to analyze how people with and without Dyslexia perceive music and visual elements.

Tools for Intervention

  • Dyseggxia at the age of 7 in English, Spanish & German (FREE in the App Store)

Tools for adults

“Kinder mit Lese-Rechtschreib-Schwäche haben auch Stärken – und die gilt es zu finden und ebenfalls zu fördern. Es ist nicht nötig, diese Kinder alleine über ihre Lese- und Rechtschreibfähigkeiten zu definieren und es gibt viele Möglichkeiten, nach der Schule Tools zu nutzen und Methoden zu entwickeln, um die Rechtschreibung zuverbessern.” – Maria Rauschenberger –

  1. Vokabel Trainer: Learning words I frequently spell wrong with the App Semper
  2. Spellchecker: Grammarly – still use the free version – which is helping very much to find the mistakes in English
  3. Spellchecker: Google Docs finds lots of mistakes – good for writing anything there and then copy and past it 😉
  4. Course for Learning how to read and write (Hamburg)
  5. Ask for Support also as an Adult!
