Products and Solutions
Among its flagship solutions that address challenges in learning faced by school children, PCTA offers a unique screening tool, Dyslexia Screening Test Junior – India (DST-JINDIA) that can be administered to students not only by psychologists but also by school teachers, to identify children at risk for dyslexia, a test of intellectual ability, Raven’s Educational – CPM/CVS India, and a revolutionary online training program, Cogmed, that improves attention and working memory capacity. Cogmed is a unique learning solution in the ICT space because of its focus on addressing an intrinsic difficulty in learning rather than enhancing the mode of learning. These assessments are significant offerings in the school space and will help enrich student learning in India, after being successfully used in other countries.
