About EarlyBird

EarlyBird is a technology platform offering better assessments and support to optimize the early stages of learning. It responds to emerging brain science revealing that literacy issues, like dyslexia, can be identified before a child enters kindergarten – even before they learn to read - when early intervention has a dramatic impact on reading and self-esteem outcomes.

EarlyBird is commercializing a breakthrough mobile app + web-based platform, based on research and technology developed at Boston Children’s Hospital. With just 30 minutes of game play, we can predict which children will struggle with reading.
