SpEd@home, a Mumbai-based education technology firm for children with special needs, has raised $300,000 in its first round of funding. Financial specialists and consultants from a Singapore-based venture capital firm, as well as other high-net-worth people, led the round (HNIs).
SpEd@home is a multi-sensory learning environment for children with learning disabilities, attention deficit or hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and those on the autism spectrum. It was founded in 2020 by Dr. Dhaval Mody after observing how limited access to remedial centres during the pandemic hampered the learning outcomes of children with differential needs. It offers remediation, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and socio-emotional coaching, among other tech-driven personalised treatments for children’s cognitive deficiencies.
SpEd@home strives to improve learning outcomes for children with special needs by increasing access to education for everyone and providing high-quality special education and therapy. Its trained coaches assist children with a wide range of developmental issues through one-on-one meetings and programmes tailored to their specific needs and goals. The company creates developmentally appropriate programmes that take into account the sensory, motor, and brain apparatus to ensure that the child is prepared to succeed. Group programmes, tailored parent workshops, and teacher training sessions are also available through SpEd@home.
