1 out of every 5 children is believed to suffer from one of the developmental disorders. It is often the case that parents cannot detect the nature of the disorder for many years and only a small number of such cases are able to get diagnosed and then treated as required. Mr. Harsh Songra himself, went undiagnosed from a disorder named ‘Dyspraxia’ until the age of 9.
At the age of 19, Mr. Harsh Songra decided to develop an app which would help the parents detect any developmental disorder in their children at an early stage. ‘My Child App’ is an android app, which uses artificial intelligence to track a child’s growth and inform their parents if there are any delays in their child’s growth and development. He has also created a platform to spread the awareness of developmental disorders, called ‘We Included’. This platform has been bringing together parents and helping them understand the world of differently-abled community, mental health and healthcare through data, stories, and information.
Scalability and Impact:
At present, this app is being used in more than 140 countries with more than 14,000 downloads. Mr. Songra is planning to add more qualitative content and build relations with healthcare brands to grow the app and increase its activities on social media.
