Meet the founder: Kyne

Meet member, Ray Staines. Discover what inspired him to pursue his venture, Kyne.

What is your venture? 
Kyne is an early years neuro-inclusive learning platform with built in screening for literacy learning differences providing real time “the-moment-its-needed” diagnostics for children so they never get behind. Kyne also reaches across the whole learning demographic and a wide range of educational settings to build a database of learning traits that will inform teaching strategies at local, regional and national levels. 

Why did you start this journey? 
I left school at the age of 16 with mental health issues, a drug habit and very poor prospects. By the age of 21 I’d had a major mental breakdown.  At age 39 I was diagnosed with dyslexia and language processing disorder.  No one should find out the hard way - but the major diagnostic for dyslexia to this day is failure and it is estimated that 80% of dyslexia goes undiagnosed in our schools. 

What is your vision?  
We’re on a mission to help children discover and enjoy writing - and our purpose is to make a world without illiteracy - where every child reaches their full potential.
