AmplioSpeech Offers Special Education Platform

The company just raised $27 million.

AmplioSpeech

Israeli startup AmplioSpeech has developed a digital platform that connects students, educators and therapists with advanced technologies to help students with special needs. The company raised $27 million in funding led by Quad Partners, a private equity firm focused on high-quality education companies.

AmplioSpeech develops digital special education solutions which it says are designed to maximize student outcomes and empower students and their families, special educators, therapists, and administrators. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing (NLP) and personalization algorithms, the outcomes-driven digital platform measures and reinforces student progress. The company says that its blended learning model enables special educators to deliver high-intensity interventions to more students, addressing the critical issue of learning loss at an accelerated pace.

We all know someone who has what is now referred to as a special need when it comes to education. If not, then you know someone with a special needs child. Special needs can be dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, hearing problems, or being on the autism spectrum.

AmplioSpeech declares its mission to be to improve the lives of all students with special academic needs.

The company says that special educators gain more time for clinical work using the AmplioSpeech platform because it streamlines scheduling and compliance reporting and provides automated documentation on student performance and progress. Special education directors and school, district and state admins gain a 360-degree view of school compliance, learning times per student, progress reports and several other metrics.

AmplioSpeech also offers its own licensed professionals to fill in staffing gaps many schools have.

“Amplio utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) to improve student outcomes in various areas of need – speech-language deficits, dyslexia and others” said Dr. Yair Shapira, founder and CEO, who established it to help his son who stutters.

“Studies show that student progress is highly correlated to the level of intensity in the interventions. Amplio’s platform equips students with individualized, outcomes-focused instruction so they can meet their goals and make faster progress, especially in light of the learning loss accumulated through the pandemic,” Shapira added.
