We found out about Touch-type Read and Spell through our homeschool co-op. My oldest son was 8 or 9 at the time, but I have four children and as they grew up each one was able to go through the course.
A lot of the learning for homeschool these days is online and so my kids needed to know how to type. What I liked most about TTRS is that it caters to different learning styles.
We don’t have any specific learning difficulties in the family, but it really supported and bolstered them as they were learning how to read. It also backed up what they were doing in other subjects.
My third son especially, he had not even started with phonics but we let him play around with typing on TTRS. When he did start learning to read, it went so fast.
I also recommended TTRS to my sister who homeschools and has a son who struggles with spelling difficulties. She’s trying it this year and has said it’s really helping her and has made a noticeable difference in his spelling skills after only two months of use!
