Rehabilitation through
music for children with
learning disabilities

We are currently conducting an international pivotal study to study Mila’ impact on the child’s reading skills. As a result, registrations are currently on hold but please let us know if you are interested in participating in our next clinical trial!

Games combining concentration, motor skills, memory and rhythm.

Learning while having fun

A fairy-tale world

Mila takes the children through a story, and introduces new characters throughout the chapters.

Entertaining music

Songs are chosen to motivate the child. Those are famous and well-known tracks, including Kidz Bop, The Jungle Book and many other Disney scores, to regain self-confidence and have a fun time.

Music for health and education

Musical and rhythmic learning supports sound discrimination, the notion of time, the precision of gesture: skills underlying reading and writing.

We're building a digital therapeutic for children with specific learning disorders which focuses on intermodal integration to improve the child's therapeutic continuity.

Therapeutic continuity

Mila is the ideal companion for continuing rehabilitation at home.

Contact us on the symbol on the right side of your page

When will new chapters come out?

We are working on creating new stories to offer new content every month.

In the meantime, you can continue training with the same games in the training area of the application.

How can I see my child's progress?

We use in-house rhythmic and clinical metrics to adapt the difficulty of our courses as much as possible for the children and we are working to allow you to easily follow the child's progress within your personal space.

We are aware that you are waiting a lot for this feature, but please be patient a little longer before you can access this part!

In the meantime, if you have any recommendations of what would be important to you please feel free to send them to us! 🙏

What are the differences between Mila and other support products already available?

Mila belongs to digital therapeutics: evidence-based interventions driven by high-quality software to prevent and support disorders. The development of these therapies is driven with the same standards of evidence, quality and regulatory supervision as traditional medical treatments. The commitments we have therefore made are as follows:

  • Patient safety
  • Clinical demonstration of efficacy
  • The patient is at the center of our developments
  • Confidentiality and respect of private data
  • Continuous improvement of the clinical impact.

As an example, this involves for the clinical demonstration conducting rigorous studies approved by the authorities (ANSM, FDA...), including a control arm to avoid a placebo effect, guaranteeing the transparency of the statistical analysis and publishing the results in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

These very high standards are, in our opinion, a sine-qua-non condition for the trust that families and health professionals may place in us. Far too many claims and false promises have been made and are unfortunately still being made, to the detriment of patients and science.

In line with this philosophy, we are committed to promoting science on the subject and to encourage the creation of numerous multipartners research projects to better support children. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are a researcher, a doctor or a student - it will be a pleasure to build future research projects together!

Who is behind Mila?

Engineers for learning differentiation, motor and singing activities and the computer magic wand.

Game developers (thanks Seb, Didier, Xavier & other contributors!) who work hard to make the use of Mila smooth and the students engaged in their learning.

Scientists, speech therapists and psychomotricians without whom we could not build Mila, and whose feedback allows us to improve the therapeutic accompaniment of the children. Special thanks to Pr Habib (APHM, neuropsychologist), Pr Cohen (APHP, head of the child psychiatry department at Pitié-Salpêtrière and Necker), Pr Bolduc (Quebec, research chair in music and learning), Charline Grossard (speech therapist, APHP Pitié-Salpêtrière), Joana Matos (Physician CRTA, Pitié-Salpêtrière).

What is the clinical validity of Mila?

Mila stems directly from the rich neuroscience literature of recent years devoted to the implications of auditory and rhythmic stimulation on the strengthening of connections between distant brain areas.

A growing number of studies thus show that rhythm and music training interventions are effective in improving reading skills in children with dyslexia [1]; the improvements observed are close to those obtained with methods more conventionally used in clinical practice such as phoneme discrimination training. The effect of musical and rhythmic interventions also extends to other motor and cognitive functions; they may therefore also be beneficial in other developmental disorders (ADHD, language disorders, etc.). Presentation in the form of a game helps to increase adherence to training; the goal is to provide content that is as recreational as the commercial games that children usually play.

Two pre-clinical studies were conducted at the Centre de rééducation neurologique de l'hôpital Bicêtre (15 children, 2018) and in Quebec City (55 children, 2020).

A large-scale clinical study is being prepared in collaboration with Pitié-Salpêtrière to confirm the usefulness of this approach.

How is my data used?

First of all, we do not sell or share your data with any company. As the data we process is very sensitive, we work with the CNIL to always be in compliance with the RGPD for child health data.

Mila is available to you within the framework of our clinical development with the Assistance publique - Hôpitaux de Paris. Within this framework, our wish is to help as many children with learning disabilities as possible and to make Mila known by spreading it as widely as possible.
