Abstract: Headway Project seeks to understand Development of a kid’s brain. Brain, the leader of human body is related to changing cognitive abilities of child as they develop. The research team developing the Headway product to develop kid’s cognitive skills and pedagogical level using android application. This application includes some Brain Development activities such as; Logic & Thinking, Music, Mathematics & Numbers. Each category consist of five activities. The main objective of this project is to calculate the performance of the child in education, in different subjects. In Sri Lanka, developing country, the hospitals are using a manual system based on United States standards. Due to that reason it is important to introduce an automated process. There are some games based on kids brain development (Toca town, Reader rabbit, Brain Game and etc.), but those do not provide any detailed report for the parent and not included more than three activities. Even though there are so many international standardized psychometric tests are available to scale out the intelligence of children. Therefore the research team found a way to solve the identified issues by developing an Android application to track the progress of kid’s brain by giving detailed report for the parent according to the psychiatric algorithm. Headway system is implemented using Java language, Android software development kit and the integrated development environment is Android Studio version 0.4.2. The development teams’ sole effort is to formulate a test bench for Sri Lankan children who are in age limit of 4 to 6 years in reverence to our culture & social requirement.
