A machine learning model to detect speech and reading pathologies

Fabio Fassetti, Ilaria Fassetti


  This work addresses the problem of helping speech therapists in interpreting results of tachistoscopes. These are instruments widely employed to diagnose speech and reading disorders. Roughly speaking, they work as follows. During a session, some strings of letters, which may or not correspond to existing words, are displayed to the patient for an amount of time set by the therapist. Next, the patient is asked for typing the read string. From the machine learning point of view, this raise an interesting problem of analyzing the sets of input and output words to evaluate the presence of a pathology.
