NELDA - North East Lancashire Dyslexia Association and Touch-type Read and Spell
By 2000, we at Nelda had realised the advantages of using a programme to develop other skills as an alternative to struggling with pen and paper for children and adults with literacy difficulties.
Touch-type Read and Spell has recently been endorsed by NOCN - The National Open College Network.
NOCN is a leading credit-based awarding organisation that has been creating opportunities for students and learners for over 25 years. They are trusted and recognised by learners, educational organisations and employers.
A new study from Oxford University released this week suggests that Multi Sensory programmes might be the most effective learning tools for people with Dyslexia.
Vanessa Harrar’s hypothesis is that people with Dyslexia have more difficulty switching the focus of their attention than those without. The research paper entitled “Multisensory Integration and Attention in Development Dyslexia” studied the reaction times of people on tasks that involved switching between their senses. It found that those with Dyslexia were slower.
The prestigious Education Resource Awards are in their 16th year, and Touch, Type, Read and Spell has been nominated as a finalist in two different categories, the “Supplier of the Year - under £1 million” and “Best Special Education Resource or Equipment including ICT”.
2013 has been a busy year here at TTRS, mainly because of our decision to make our learning experience available via the Internet, and the subsequent launch of TTRS Online. We've wanted to 'go online' for years but, like other providers of interactive learning, we've had to sit on our hands while cloud technology caught up.
