To overcome this problem we came up with an educational app that helps this people to get educated via a completely free platform. This app can also be used to educated the kids. The UI of the app is user friendly. The app acts like an all time friend for the autism patients, who are often neglected by the society.

  • Pronounce the word and check whether it is correct or not.
