Provide your children with a reliable reading assessment.
eyeRadar is objective.
The only response we measure is the eye movement signal that provides us with natural means to objectively assess the reading process as it unfolds in real-time. However, current assessment methods are sensitive to subjective judgements and interrater variability and thus easily introduce inconsistencies in the results.
It’s super accurate too.
eyeRadar is one of the cases that technology is better than humans. It tracks more than 25 parameters, something that no human can perceive, and its algorithms provide accurate and measurable data.
And provides you with the most in-depth report.
An eyeRadar specialist with the use of deep reading analysis and AI will produce a report that includes reading efficiency, word segmentation, text comprehension & 25 more parameters that will be used as a mapping tool for the reading capabilities of the child.

Why you should choose eyeRadar
Current reading assessments are simply not good enough. Some tell you that your child can’t read, some might indicate why. ΕyeRadar is the only one which is going the extra mile and is providing the therapists with insights on how to help the child overcome those difficulties and improve.

How an eyeRadar assessment looks like:
1. Just read some texts.
Your child will sit for 10-15 minutes in front of a computer screen to silently read a couple of age specific texts. While they read, a small discreet camera in front of the computer screen will keep track of their eye movement. In the end, they will be asked a few simple comprehension questions.
2. We analyze eye movement with deep reading & AI.
An eyeRadar specialist decodes the reading session into meaningful data to create an in-depth report which gives measurable qualitative and quantitative data about your child’s reading capabilities.
3. You get the eyeRadar report.
Our unique in-depth report includes 25+ parameters such as word segmentation & text comprehension to help the therapist of your choice to create a laser focused treatment plan.
4. Track your child’s progress.
By retaking the assessment and comparing the results, you can track your child’s progress and identify the areas they need to work and focus more.
For all the little or big questions you still have.
How does eye tracking connect with dyslexia?
It is important to note that dyslexia is not a visual impairment or eye movement problem. It stems from difficulties in phonological processing and word decoding. These difficulties, however, are reflected in disruptive eye movement patterns during reading, which make eye tracking a useful method for identifying individuals at risk.
I’ve also heard about other methods that is also using eye tracking. How does your technology compares to theirs?
eyeRadar itracks the eye movements while reading in silence, since dyslexia is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.
On the other hand, other method tracks eye movements on moving or flashing dots and not in reading text, which does not fulfill the standards for dyslexia screening.
Is the eyeRadar assessment tool validated?
Yes! Our tool is validated for both Greek and English.
A validated tool is an instrument that has been psychometrically tested for reliability (the ability of the instrument to produce consistent results), validity (the ability of the instrument to produce true results), sensitivity (the probability of correctly identifying a patient with the condition).
There are few online free questionnaires indicating if someone has dyslexia or not. Why should I choose the eyeRadar?
The short answer is NO; these tests are not capable to show accurately on their own whether a kid has reading abnormalities and whether it needs help to overcome them. Essentially, we understand that free sounds attractive, but free doesn’t mean it will do the job.
In the case of diagnosing dyslexia, it means that these tests have very limited capabilities in the hands of a non expert and they can lead to a false evaluation with serious implications.
The long answer requires you to understand the significant difference between testing, assessment (eyeRadar) and evaluation (therapists).
Testing measures the level of skill or knowledge that has been reached. Evaluation is the process of making judgments based on criteria and evidence. Assessment is the process of documenting knowledge, skills, attitudes and beliefs, usually in measurable terms.
Essentially that means that these tests can only measure to some degree if the reading capabilities of the child are up to the expected level, something that you could possibly do on your own if you asked your child to read you a text.
On the other hand, an assessment tool can accurately MEASURE the problem by qualifying & quantifying data. This is exactly what eyeRadar does; it decodes eye movement data into meaningful insights for parents & therapists.
Finally, evaluation is being used to evaluate these data to determine course of action. This is what the therapists do, who are they only experts to recommend what sort of treatment can help the kids to overcome their reading abnormalities.
Our assessment tool is backed up with 10 years of research, collaborations with world class universities like Harvard and Cardiff Metropolitan and a series of published papers which you can find here.
Why does the child read silently?
The natural way of reading is silent. Don’t take our word on that, just ask yourself how you read those lines.
Without an eye tracker, silent reading is not possible to evaluate, so we have to read out loud. Thus, the evaluation is on a particular task related to reading, but does not reflect the actual process of reading as it naturally occurs.
With the eyeRadar tool we are able to objectively assess the reading process as it unfolds in real-time.
Why do you have to ask questions at the end of the reading process?
We need to make sure that they understood what they read.
My child is younger than 8 years old and older than 14. Should he be assessed?
If it is younger than 8, then yes, as a point of reference for the years to come. For these ages we can only talk for “indications” of reading problems. We have to wait until he/she start reading until we have a conclusion.
If it is older, absolutely yes. The window of opportunity is 8-12 years old. The older we get, the more difficult is to treat reading problems and dyslexia.
