ReadRunner was conceived by three people who thought that reading should be for everyone, even those who find it difficult and scary.
First was Maria Gabriella, who’s son has dyslexia, and who fought with him for years through the difficulties of reading in a world that does not understand.
Being a computer expert, Maria Gabriella believed that technology might be able to help her son, as well as millions throughout the world. So she asked her friend, Remo, an engineer and designer to help. Remo got excited and asked Eyal, his friend, a psychologist and designer to help as well.
And so three people have embarked on a journey to create a beautiful and useful tool that can help people read.
Not read for them, but let them enjoy the wonderful experience of reading.
The first prototype was successfully tested in the Istituto Scolastico Pellegrini di Massarosa, with fourteen dyslexic students, ten to fourteen years old, under the supervision of the Clinica Universitaria di Neuroriabilitazione di Pisa.
ReadRunner is currently in a more advanced field-testing phase with an improved product, and is available for testing and collaborations
