Cognoa is a new startup which is using technology to help parents and medical professionals identify developmental delays in children earlier, and with more accuracy.
For a variety of reasons, diagnosis delays are a common occurrence within the medical world, which can result in frustration and confusion for both the parent and the child. Cognoa, aims to change this, by offering parents a tech-infused developmental tracker, which helps one identify a child's developmental progress, in addition to assessing potential contributing factors and eventually, sharing the findings with healthcare professionals.
The app provides parents with tips on encouraging developments, such as taking a first step or waving 'Goodbye' through the use of illustrations, videos and articles. The app aims to celebrate the diversity among children, while ensuring parents have all the resources necessary to understand their child's psychology.
