LIAR is able to record all interactions with the application and, through an automated reporting system, to provide a summary of the most important data to allow primary caregivers, therapists and teachers to monitor learning and direct teaching . The data is recorded on the cloud in a completely anonymous way through a dedicated application.
Training i-MAND and personalization
LIAR is structured according to a training that contains all the steps necessary for teaching the required i-MAND communication.
