AgileEye, a new Internet-based software from Israel, claims to help build eye-brain co-ordination for dyslexics aged seven and above. The game has been available on the Internet since March of this year. The objective of the game is to ensure a moving car stays on the middle of the road. To play, you have to log on, register, fill in a few details, so that settings can be customised, and thereafter you can play the game over 12 sessions of 12 minutes each spread over six weeks for a fee.

Says clinical psychologist Hvovi Bhagwagar, “It’s a brilliant invention and will be very useful to dyslexics, especially adult dyslexics as they need to drive and work on the computer. Often dyslexics don’t get adequate practical training and this software might help.”
