Israel tech company AmplioSpeech, which has developed a digital intervention platform for special education students, has announced a $27 million funding round led by Quad Partners, which specializes in EdTech investments. Quad was joined by Volos Investments, which runs a special education school and also invested in the company in its previous round. AmplioSpeech has raised $37 million to date. "The concept behind Amplio is based on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) in order to help and improve the capabilities of children with special needs in the areas of speech-language, dyslexia, and more," said Dr. Yair Shapira, the CEO and founder who set up AmplioSpeech to help his son who suffers from a speech impediment. "Research has shown that the progress of students is correlated to the intensity level of the treatment they receive. Amplio's platform provides students with detailed and result-focused tutorship so that they can meet their results and progress at a fast pace, in particular, due to the loss of school time during the Covid-19 pandemic."
