A NOTE FROM CREATOR MARCIA EDEL
How It Started?
I’m the parent of a daughter who has dysgraphia, which means that she struggled with handwriting from the beginning of her school experience. We tried various tools to help her, but none had all the right features for math—and the unique, complex formatting it requires compared to written language.
It hurt my heart to see what she went through, because for kids with dysgraphia or other handwriting issues, the challenge doesn’t begin and end with a particular homework assignment—it can have a huge impact on workload, self-esteem, and even future career options. That’s why I decided to develop KiwiWrite using my own background as a computer scientist, a math person, a design hobbyist, and a parent.
Today, my daughter is thriving in college. She’s not only my inspiration for KiwiWrite but also my valued consultant, testing prototypes and advising on aspects like fonts, images, and how things are arranged. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or kid reading this, my hope is that the lessons I learned the hard way over the years can make math easier for you.
I’m proud and delighted to share KiwiWrite Math with you.
Our mission at KiwiWrite Math is to make math accessible. Handwriting math can be a big source of anxiety and frustration for students with:
Fine motor impairments
And some students just don’t enjoy handwriting!
We designed our assistive technology for students who struggle to handwrite math. KiwiWrite does the writing, so the student can focus on solving the math.
The KiwiWrite Math software was developed in partnership with the talented ProgX Technologies and Aloa teams. We’re extra grateful for their collaboration towards our missions of making math accessible.
