We are in a literacy crisis: 64% of US 4th graders can't read at grade level. Children with disabilities fare far worse: for example, 92% of blind children cannot read braille.

In schools, teachers use phonics to allow children to 'sound out' novel words.

However, teaching phonics requires a great deal of one-on-one instructional time that teachers don't have.

The Read Read is a patent pending physical device that allows all children to independently learn foundational literacy skills.
T-var EdTech designs and sells devices that teach children of all abilities how to read.
