Winner: Kidaura Innovations Pvt. Ltd. – Early Stage
Identification of children with autism at an early age is very challenging and to address this challenge, Kidaura has designed a digital-based screening tool called ScreenPlay, that identifies children who may have a potential risk to autism or any other condition in the age group of 3-6 years. The main advantage of using games is that this helps us in capturing the true nature of the child without letting the child know that he/she is being assessed. Moreover, through our tech, we can record every minute details that naked can’t even comprehend. Additionally, AI lets us extract and analyze patterns in the child’s gameplay which helps in predicting the potential risk of autism and other related disabilities.
Till now we have screened 1075 children in 11 pre-schools and Aanganwadis across Nashik and Jharkhand whereas we have identified 10 children with Autism and related conditions and 17 children with developmental delays.
Kidaura is a social startup working on enhancing the lives of children in their formative years of growth and development. Kidaura has designed a digital-based screening tool called ScreenPlay, that identifies children who may have a potential risk to autism or any other condition in the age group of 3-6 years. We are also working on technological solutions that will enable and provide access to home-based therapies to children with developmental disabilities.
So from an early screening of developmental challenges to the reinforcement of home-based therapies for children with special needs, is where Kidaura is currently functioning.
