When a person reads a line of text, his/her eyes make a sequence of fixations. Fast movements between fixations are called saccades that accurately “guide” the eyes to an information-wise optimal landing point, literally the central part of our retina: the fovea. Foveal vision is a prerequisite for visual detail. R.A.D.A.R. Method (Rapid Assessment of Dyslexia & Abnormalities in Reading) can accurately and objectively pinpoint these eye movements and fixations in order to analyze the reading pattern of the individual.
RADAR is a novel, fast, objective non-invasive method for assessing reading difficulties with a special focus on dyslexia. The RADAR assessment is an OBJECTIVE screening tool which is completely computerized. Based on a series of eye movement parameters, the assessment can evaluate the reading capability of the individual and pinpoint the problem areas during the reading process.The RADAR assessment which has been developed over the last decade by a multidisciplinary team of scientists is able to differentiate between individuals that have variosu reading problems, such as dyslexia, compared to typical readers.
Using RADAR technology, we can help individuals by:
- rapidly screening them for reading difficulties (such as dyslexia),
- quantifing their problem, based on algorithms and mathematical models that quantify the severity of the problem numerically,
- providing an individualized treatment plan based on a series of eye tracking parameters,
- monitoring their impovement and the development of their reading ability (typical or aberrant).
