COTOLETTO was born in 2012, after a Master thesis in Developmental Psychology at the University of Turin, focused on learning disabilities. Given its great appeal, we decided to start developing a software which could assess reading and reading comprehension skills in a clear, objective, immediate and anonymous way.
COTOLETTO software is designed for primary school children, who could attend appropriate online reading tests under adult supervision. COTOLETTO can be used by parents, helping them become conscious of reading problems of their children, and by teachers, in order to support them with their pupils.
Then, you will be re-directed to the hom
e page of a "fake" website of fairy tales: this particular context will present the reading text as a simple fable, read together with a familiar person (parent or teacher), avoiding any kind of anxiety in children.
During the reading test, COTOLETTO will evaluate in real time reading comprehension parameters. At the end, you will receive all the results , together with a list of selected addresses and contacts of centers, associations and professionals within your area of residence, so you will be able to ask for information or support or even a complete diagnosis.
COTOLETTO needs your help, with Euro 1.200,00 it can start! You can help it on Starteed for 2 months, in which they will guide you, step by step, into the software development!
It's an important project for help child, we hope you can support it (you can give how much you want), just have a look!
