At Talamo, research is paramount. We recently conducted a study with 850 UK school children across 15 schools, ensuring a diverse demographic representation.
This included collaborations with two dyslexia specialist schools, which provided comparison groups for us to train our model. Our methodology combined logistic regression and spikey profile assessments, which provided a two-pronged approach to achieve accurate results.
Our tool has been age-standardised to ensure accuracy across all age groups ages 7-16. Achieving a 94% accuracy rate, our model is now approaching parity of human assessors, underscoring the reliability of our screening tool.
Looking ahead, we aim to enhance our tool’s precision further. In March 2024, we will test on an additional 1,000 UK pupils, aiming to refine our assessment’s accuracy. This upcoming research will culminate in a whitepaper, detailing our advancements and ongoing commitment to neurodiversity.
At Talamo, our continuous improvement ethos ensures our dyslexia assessment tool is both effective and trustworthy, and we will not stop in our pursuit of having the most accurate dyslexia test available.
