Our Mission

Fonto Media was founded in 2019 with the primary goal of improving the scientific quality and accessibility of information on health, rehabilitation, and communication.

Noble Intent!

However, it must be put into practice, and the best way to achieve it must be considered!

Our rigorous information review and verification process

Here is the process we follow for the writing and updating of each article.

The idea is to:

  1. Start from the experience of one or more individuals.
  2. Compare it with the writer’s knowledge and expertise in their field.
  3. The writer then compares their knowledge and experiences with a broader sample than just themselves. This involves conducting in-depth documentary research in international academic literature as well as more mainstream sources. This is done in order to better understand and explain the questions of internet users.

In practical terms, this results in the following 6 points:
