9/10 I heard about Touch-type Read and Spell from DAI Ireland. I find it's helpful to provide typing as a skill for my son with dyslexia. He has definitely improved since using the program.

Our 11 year-old daughter LOVES TTRS! She has faithfully done it 5 days a week for the past month and a half and is learning to type well. She is excited and is determined to get through all of the levels.

10/10 I love the integration of typing, spelling and reading in TTRS! My kids can do it independently with me just occasionally checking that they are using the correct fingers.

10/10 TTRS is easy for me to use and my child has learned how to type. It has also dramatically improved her spelling.
