10/10 This is a great program!
We love TTRS and it is helping our children tremendously. My son who is dyslexic is now seeing words and reading them for the first time. The other day he saw the cover of the movie "Antz" and he said that's not how you spell "ants" it's A-N-T-S I was so happy. Today he saw the word "school" and he read it! This is amazing and we are thrilled to be seeing such wonderful results.
10/10 This program is easy to use.

9/10 TTRS is very easy for a child to use.
TTRS has been amazing for my son. He has been doing it for over a year now after having previously struggled with spelling to no end. Before TTRS, he wouldn't even write a sentence because of his spelling struggles. Writing anything or typing anything was such a no-go for him. I am so happy to say that one year later, he is writing full five-paragraph essays via typing and doing so much better with his spelling! I know we owe a lot of that success to Touch-type Read & Spell (TTRS). We appreciate this program so very much!
10/10 TTRS is fun, fully instructional, and doesn't have too much lecturing or talking to the learner. The material is presented intuitively and my granddaughter who has ADHD loves it. In just a few months she is typing 20 wpm and using it in all her other subjects.
While we have only had Touch-type Read Spell for a few weeks, I can tell you that it has already made a positive impact on my son's writing and confidence levels. This program begins with proper keyboard placement of the fingers, then uses verbal directions for practice. Lessons are customized for my son's age/grade level - he's in 6th grade. He did not like keyboarding before this course, but already, just after a few weeks, actually asks to do TTRS. He is improving in speed and accuracy when it comes to keystrokes, but best of all, TTRS is improving his confidence. I was looking for a keyboarding program that would enable him to type rather than write with a pen or pencil, since that can be difficult for him. I'm very happy with this product, and will continue to use TTRS. I like the immediate feedback and unlimited attempts he has to try again. Also, the information I can access on grades and improvement will be very helpful for my portfolio review and assessment. Thank you TTRS, I finally found a keyboarding program that works and is liked by my son!
10/10 I see huge value in TTRS for children with dyslexia.
9/10 TTRS is user-friendly, includes repetition, and has quick levels.
10/10 Not only does this program help my child learn to type, but it also helps with spelling because he is typing real words. I love it!
10/10 We have seen the benefits of TTRS in helping adult learners improve their literacy and their typing. It's easy to administer and good value for money.
10/10 My son struggled with the Keyboarding Without Tears app, but he is flourishing with TTRS! I love the dictation aspect as well.
10/10 Outstanding design within the program itself, but more importantly the customer support is so efficient and thorough it just outshines any other product I've tried. I am beyond impressed with TTRS.
9/10 TTRS works! The kids are motivated to do it and they don’t realize how much they are actually learning. Thanks for a great product!

10/10 The children at our school are very engaged in doing their TTRS lessons. The program gives them excellent reading, typing and spelling help, which they will need going forward to secondary level. We've found parents are very pleased with the programme and often report that their children with dyslexia are more confident and engaged in learning activities. I have also found that TTRS gives pupils an advantage over their peers in that they have typing skills and they are more confident undertaking ICT projects in class.
9/10 I like that TTRS not only teaches typing but spelling patterns too.
10/10 I have found TTRS effective in improving typing and spelling. It is quite therapeutic and the short modules make it manageable.

The children in our school who have used TTRS have made excellent progress. It's a useful program for all ages and levels and I wish it had been available when I was a child!
10/10 TTRS does what it says it does - it teaches students how to type as well as boosting their reading and spelling skills.
9/10 TTRS is the best typing programme available because it has the greatest range of vocabulary. I also like that it's combined with a structured and sequential approach to spelling, well integrated with learning to type.

10/10 As a specialist Dyslexic School, the TTRS Course suits our needs perfectly.
10/10 TTRS is easy to use.

This is a great program. My son actually enjoys typing now. I love that it is a work at your own pace program.
10/10 The program is as advertised. It's a multi-sensory approach to reading, spelling, and typing. My 9 year old enjoys doing the lessons. They are the right length to keep his interest and attention without tiring him out. He often does more than one at a time, but he can take breaks. The pronunciation is clear. I love the progression of the spelling patterns in the lessons.
I have two kids using TTRS, one with dyslexia and one with ADD. It has helped both with their reading skills and ability to focus. It takes time, patience, practice and repetition, but this typing program helps to make all of those things more interactive and interesting.
10/10 The program is clear and concise. A child can work through material on his/her own. It is easy to monitor progress. All of the above are essentials in the busy life of a homeschooling mom.
10/10 TTRS uses different modalities to reinforce learning, including tactile, visual and sound.
10/10 I find it very helpful.
10/10 It's such a well-structured programme that is easy to manage and keep an eye on. Using TTRS for 10 to 15 minutes a day, children can become proficient typists. I've also seen huge improvements in reading and spelling.
I absolutely love Touch Type Read and Spell. My 10 year old has already become very proficient at typing. It has also helped out with his spelling skills. Another aspect I really enjoy is that there is no prep work for me, I just log him on and he starts working. It has been very helpful for my family!
10/10 My daughter loves this program. She keeps a notebook with the words and sentences from TTRS that she types. Timed exercises are too frustrating on account of her delay in giving responses but TTRS allows her to go at her own pace. She is learning to type and connect this to her handwriting. She is very proud of these accomplishments. In addition, my son loves his newfound typing speed. He occasionally will challenge me to check if he is faster!
10/10 TTRS is a fun way to learn an invaluable skill.
A very good service and good customer support.
10/10 TTRS is a great online course. It's very easy to use and my touch typing is really improving.

10/10 TTRS is a great program. My son loves it and has learned a lot.
10/10 I work in a school and I find the fact that learners get a score at the end of each TTRS module keeps them engaged, particularly the older children and the boys. I work with three boys who are dyslexic and have recommended TTRS to several of the KS2 teachers.
10/10 This is a great program!
10/10 I know this program works because I can type this sentence.

10/10 It works!
9/10 With its visual approach, this typing course really suits my son and I think it strikes a good balance between simple and challenging. I wouldn’t use this with my younger son as I prefer him to use pen and paper, but it’s brilliant for my older son who has autism and struggles to write.
10/10 TTRS is a fantastic program! It works three skills at the same time and really breaks learning down to make typing accessible. It's led to improvements in spelling as well. I’m super happy with it. Thank you for making such a great resource!
10/10 An excellent program with proven results.
10/10 It kept my son engaged and I can see it helping more than just his typing skills.
10/10 A very clear programme that children can navigate through comfortably. Instructions are clear and results are good once they complete the modules.
My daughter has always struggled with reading and spelling. I have her using TTRS three times a week. I've seen her spelling and reading skills improve drastically. An added bonus is that she loves it - so much so that she asks to use the program on days I don't schedule it!
10/10 It’s easy to use and it is working. I recommend TTRS all the time on various Dyslexia support groups online.
10/10 The structured approach is sequential, visual, and auditory.

10/10 TTRS is structured, easy to use, and expands to follow spelling patterns from Alpha to Omega.
9/10 This is a very user-friendly course, especially for children with literacy issues.
This is our second year using the TTRS program. My son started last fall and now this year he is in first grade and I am very pleased with the progress of his typing skills. He is learning how to spell and learning to type at the same time. Each lesson takes him about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
10/10 It is an easy to use program with great visuals, clear commands, and it's self-grading. All the way around, we love the program for its independence and its easy learning approach. Great for all learning types.
10/10 TTRS has been used and well received in our school in Tanzania.
10/10 My kids don't fight about having to do TTRS, and they are definitely improving their spelling and typing. There is no doubt this program is also helping with their dyslexia and writing disability.

10/10 This program is working nicely for my special little guy.
10/10 Students like TTRS, it's easy to administer and appears to do be doing the job it's designed for --although we haven't been using it for very long yet.
I have two boys who are dyslexic and have been using this program for over a year. We have tried other typing programs but they always complained that they were too boring. With Touch-type Read and Spell it is different. They each do the lessons on their own and without complaining. Their spelling has improved as well. I am very satisfied with the program and would highly recommend it.
10/10 I can already see the value that my kids who struggle with reading are gaining from the TTRS program.
10/10 This is the only typing program my daughter has enjoyed! We have tried others. She is dyslexic and reading is not her favorite subject, but she loves TTRS!

10/10 My son likes the TTRS program. He is motivated and is doing well!

10/10 TTRS provides an invaluable service to those with dyslexia. It can take 18 months or more to complete the course but it is so worth it.
10/10 I have already recommended this program to others. We have seen a huge boost in my daughter's oral reading ability since we started TTRS a year ago. At 7th grade, I resigned myself to her not being a smooth oral reader. We started TTRS so she could learn typing and figured if she got some reading benefit as well, that would be great. It has made a huge difference and we love it!
10/10 Thanks to TTRS all three of my sons can now touch type.
10/10 This program is user-friendly, easy for a child/teen with dyslexia or learning difficulties to use, and gives them good feedback.

10/10 Easy to use, engaging, & worth the price!
10/10 TTRS is a great typing program. It's the first program I've come across that is close to the good old way we learned in the 80s on real typewriters. All of the fluff in the other programs I looked at was a distraction and didn't help my kids.
10/10 TTRS is an excellent program. It's easy to use and follow and leads to good results.

10/10 TTRS is super easy to use, and my child can do it on his own. I also like the progress tracking. I have already recommended this program in my Facebook group of moms raising foreign kids in Japan. Our kids are often strong in verbal and listening skills, but need help with spelling. The fact that this program is designed with the audio input is perfect for our bilingual kids!
10/10 This program is quick, easy, clear, and effective. We love TTRS!
10/10 TTRS seems to be helping my granddaughter who is dyslexic.

10/10 This program really helped my son with his spelling and reading.
10/10 My son loves doing his TTRS lessons. He is learning at the same time as he is typing.
10/10 I think TTRS is an excellent program and I appreciate how it has been updated and improved since we first started!

10/10 It's working very well for my dyslexic 11 year-old and she practices without being asked.

10/10 This is an excellent online application for getting my dyslexic 11-year-old touch typing.

10/10 TTRS is helping my child learn to type and is improving his spelling too.
10/10 It's very easy and modules are short so it keeps them interested.
10/10 I love the fact that TTRS is pure typing and no silly games in between. When the children are doing it I know they are typing and not playing a game. I can reward them myself afterward for doing their typing. The fact that it is dyslexia friendly helps as well and is improving my son's spelling skills.
10/10 This is a great program for people with dyslexia.
Touch-type Read and Spell has been extremely helpful for my son. He is only 10 and had minimal computer experience when he started, but he has been using the program independently since day one. He completes all of the assignments with high marks, which is boosting his confidence all around. I cannot compare it to other typing programs because we haven't used any others, but I highly recommend it to my friends.
10/10 Spelling and reading are strengthened along with learning how to type.
10/10 TTRS is easy, provides explicit phonics instruction and is well-organized.
10/10 TTRS is a really excellent, user-friendly way to learn to touch type.
10/10 I have tried four different typing programs. This is the only one my children have stuck with. The modules are short enough so the children do not get bored, but so well put together that they are learning all the time.
10/10 This is an excellent program. It's easy to use and not full of foolishness, but interesting enough to keep the kids' attention (and keep them asking for more!). I am thrilled with the speed at which they have progressed. All are typing efficiently after only a couple of months and my son's spelling has improved.
10/10 We loved the TTRS program and our kids can now type.
10/10 TTRS is user-friendly and spelling instruction is included - the only negative for us was the computerised voice.

10/10 This program offers excellent tuition. It's easy to work with -my son just got on with it!
10/10 I have found TTRS to be an excellent teaching and learning resource for my students, particularly those on the Autistic Spectrum. TTRS allows learners to work independently and at their own pace. It gives immediate feedback and positive reinforcement which is so important in encouraging and motivating learners to improve and progress. I would hope that my comment encourages other education practitioners to discover the value of TTRS as a learning and teaching tool for use with students who have a variety of learning disabilities and complex needs.
10/10 TTRS is easy for my 10 year old dyslexic daughter to use. It doesn't take long to work through a couple of modules. She can see that she is developing her typing skills and is gaining some confidence in doing so.
10/10 TTRS can give a dyslexic/dyspraxic child like me an advantage when we start secondary school as it is one less thing to worry about. It will be a useful skill for me later on in life.
10/10 TTRS is great because it offers ease of use for parent and student. Plus, it teaches vocabulary as well as typing.
10/10 TTRS is the first program we have used that works! We've seen children make real progress.

10/10 TTRS has truly helped my dyslexic and dysgraphic 13 year old son with his spelling and reading.
10/10 I like that with TTRS my students are practising spelling while learning to type. I have a son with autism and of all of his school work, he likes TTRS the best. He is learning typing which is a good skill to have, and it's helping his spelling improve.
10/10 As a Private Literacy Tutor, I have been using TTRS for close to 10 years. While getting students up and running with their reading, TTRS has the potential to take struggling readers to the next level, allowing them to not only read and spell, but to finally put their thoughts and their homework onto the page! TTRS offers invaluable peace of mind for parents and students alike!
10/10 I love that TTRS works on reading, spelling, phonics, and typing, all rolled into one. Plus, students can work on it independently. The dashboard makes it really easy to see where my students are up to and they can even send me messages.
10/10 I recommend TTRS because it's awesome and has helped me enjoy learning again.
10/10 This course is great for dyslexic spellers!

9/10 I have five kids of various ages. Two have severe dyslexia and it is great that you can change the colours of everything and use a dyslexia-friendly font to accommodate them.
10/10 My kids love TTRS and it's the one thing that does two jobs, typing and spelling.
10/10 TTRS is fun, super helpful, and we're already seeing improvement!
10/10 TTRS was a great systematic program for my dyslexic son.
10/10 I think TTRS did a fine job teaching my children how to type.
10/10 The TTRS program is very user friendly for students.
10/10 TTRS has been a positive experience for my son. As a homeschooling mom of seven children, I noticed that one of my sons was taking an extra long time learning to read fluently, and he wasn't always reading from left to right. So I've had him using TTRS for the past two years (2nd and 3rd grade), and he is doing so much better! I feel like he is basically over his difficulties and no longer needs TTRS. However, if I see any reading or spelling trouble in the coming school year, I will not hesitate to sign him up for TTRS again! Thank you for creating this wonderful program. With its short, well-crafted lessons, TTRS is a part of our school day that is quick and painless for both the parent and the child. I recommend it without hesitation.
10/10 TTRS is a great program and easy to use.
10/10 I'm not just *likely* to recommend it. I actually have and do recommend the program to friends. One of the things I love best about it is the absence of gimmicky games that learners quickly tire of. It's solid and gets the job done.
10/10 My 5th grade son used TTRS independently for homeschool this year.
10/10 I have two dyslexic kids and they are learning to type using real words that follow a pattern. I have already recommended TTRS to a friend!
10/10 TTRS is very easy to use and helps students with other skills, such as reading and spelling, while they learn to type.
10/10 I started off teaching my daughter to use the keyboard on my own, but after discovering your service, I don't have to anymore! She is learning so much quicker with TTRS!
9/10 With TTRS the children enjoy it, it's quick to set up and it's easy to run. The literacy focus is also great and overall it is the best touch typing programme I've used.
10/10 I have a dyslexic daughter who is approaching middle school. The need for her to practice spelling is important, but the need to communicate well, especially in written form, is imperative. TTRS offers a multi-approach system to help her continue on her quest to master language, despite the challenges she faces.
10/10 My daughter absolutely loves this program. She thinks of TTRS more as a typing lesson than help with her dyslexia, which is fine by me!
10/10 TTRS is easy to use, suitable for adult learners, and the support for teachers is excellent.
10/10 TTRS is very easy and modules are short so it keeps them interested.
10/10 Having typing skills is important for children with dyslexia and they make quick progress with TTRS.
10/10 I think it's a great program and I've seen good results so far.
10/10 This program really helped my son with his spelling.
10/10 TTRS is so easy for children to use!
10/10 Our son needs a distraction free course and this is exactly what TTRS offers. I cannot see anything else that comes close to this program on the market. The audio is clear and the background neutral and that is just great. The feedback allows us to keep an eye on his progress and keeps him motivated. Thanks TTRS!
10/10 TTRS is a very thorough program. It's great for my child with dyslexia.
10/10 We have found TTRS is a fun and quick way to learn typing. My son also said that it has helped him with his spelling!
10/10 I have found it helps the pupils I work with who have spelling difficulties to develop muscle memory for the keys. For those learners who have handwriting difficulties, they feel as if they have control over the quality and legibility of their work when they can type.
10/10 This program is easy for my children to use, has great accountability for me as a teacher wanting to see their progress, and takes care of practice for three different subjects: touch-typing, reading, and spelling!
10/10 My son is dyslexic and he doesn't need adult supervision when using the TTRS course, it allows him to be right for over 90% of the time, and the learning happens without him realising it. This program is great for dyslexic children.
9/10 My son is reading better and is now pretty good at typing and spelling after using TTRS.
10/10 TTRS is very repetitive and has an auditory component. For my dyslexic son, this has been the key to his learning how to type.
10/10 This program is perfect for a 9 year old boy with severe handwriting pain and difficulty. It's just what he needed! Thanks TTRS ;).
10/10 My dyslexic child disliked every typing program I offered her until we found TTRS. She not only loves it, but she's also learned how to read and spell better. That is a win, win, win for me!
10/10 My son has slow writing, is dyslexic, dysgraphic and a visual learner. TTRS has allowed him to at last realise his potential and show how intelligent he is! Thank you.
10/10 I think TTRS offers a fun way for kids to learn typing skills.
10/10 I really like the pace of TTRS and the simplicity of using it. It's ideal for children.
9/10 TTRS is comprehensive and easy to use and access.
10/10 TTRS was recommended to me and I have now seen the results for myself.
10/10 I am using this program with two grandchildren, ages 10 and 12 and it is working well. They are about a fourth of the way through the course and they are already typing well. I have taught and tutored reading and spelling for years and strongly support the TTRS approach for teaching typing in a logical phonetic framework.
10/10 TTRS is a great, simple program that works!!
10/10 Within a month, my child increased his typing speed from about 13 to 20 words per minute with TTRS.
10/10 TTRS is simple to follow, and my 7 year old is learning the home row keys, and typing.
10/10 TTRS is effective, not just for learning keyboarding, but also spelling. The big bonus is that kids enjoy using it.
10/10 My child has learned so much through typing lessons with TTRS!
10/10 My kids really learned how to type with this program and it is very good at teaching vocabulary too. Plus, they enjoy it. They even play to see who is faster typing. I would definitely recommend TTRS.
10/10 TTRS is interactive, student-guided and well-paced. It helps students who have learning issues bring several types of skills together in order to practice.
9/10 TTRS is easy to use. My kids don't mind doing it and they enjoy competing against themselves to get better scores. It seems to be helping their reading too.
10/10 I purchased TTRS because of the potential for improved spelling skills, and I wasn't disappointed. I would definitely recommend it!
10/10 TTRS is easy for our son to use and follow.
10/10 An excellent method of learning to type. It's good to find something that's not too childish for older kids, and yet still able to keep their enthusiasm.
10/10 TTRS is the first typing program my son actually liked and wanted to work on. It's simple and encouraging.
10/10 I love how TTRS is not just typing lessons, but also reinforces reading and spelling skills. It charts the student's progress, so I can see at a glance how they are doing.
10/10 I recommend TTRS because of the sequential learning that is accomplished by the way spelling words are introduced.
10/10 It's a great program for my kids to learn typing and spiff up on spelling. It has also been a good refresher for me!
10/10 I like the way TTRS operates, and my son likes doing the lessons.
10/10 We have adopted a special needs child and after trying many other programs with minimal progress, we thought trying this course would help in multiple areas of learning. We are very pleased with our child's progress and the best part is our child is able to see the progress as well! Thank you TTRS.
10/10 It's been wonderful for my son.
10/10 My son has a visual processing disorder and as a high school sophomore needed a keyboarding program. I like that he can also hear the sounds of the words.
8/10 This program has really helped teach students typing skills. They like to see how they have improved at the end of each module.
9/10 My kids love doing the TTRS program. They often open the program themselves and complete lessons on their own.
10/10 TTRS has taught my son to touch type and has significantly improved his spelling. It is a terrific program and I have recommended it to many people. I will also put my daughter onto it at the end of the year. I am training in MSL - Multisensory Structured Language, so I can see how well structured and incremental the program is.
10/10 I think TTRS is a great program which teaches spelling, self-discipline and vocabulary, as well as how to type!
10/10 This program is easy to use, especially with the new iPad option. They also have great customer service! If I ever have a problem, it is easily and quickly resolved.
10/10 TTRS was clear, easy to follow and my child could work on it independently.
10/10 This is a great program and most importantly, my kids love it and they are learning.
10/10 The TTRS program is great!!
10/10 Not only does TTRS teach typing, it also teaches spelling, which is a huge plus for a kiddo with dyslexia or difficulties in this area.
10/10 TTRS has an easy-to-use interface and offers excellent practice for touch-typing as well as spelling.
10/10 TTRS is very user-friendly. Both of my children ages 10 and 13 enjoy using it. I like that it strengthens reading skills while teaching typing. Their typing skills are now better than mine!
9/10 I appreciate the incremental advancement of skills with TTRS. There is no time penalty, a clear layout, and no letting students go on without correcting an error. It's also easier to follow visually than other programs. No frills and no distractions.
10/10 I recommended Touch-type Read and Spell to a colleague last week during a dyslexia awareness course. I think that this program is appropriate for a large spectrum of students --all of the learners in our school seem well motivated and happy to use it. Subject teachers have also noticed improvement in class work since we began using the TTRS course.
10/10 The kids enjoyed the TTRS program! I was also easily able to see how they were doing, adjust what lesson they restarted on, and encourage them to achieve different targets to increase their score.
9/10 Good phonic progression. Repetitive practice of finger patterns. Easy to administrate.
10/10 Touch-type Read and Spell is the best touch-typing program for students with learning difficulties that I've come across. It also works perfectly for learners of all ages who don't have learning difficulties but want to know how to type. Bonus all round!
9/10 TTRS seems to be helping my daughter with dyslexia.
10/10 TTRS has worked wonderfully for my dyslexic daughter. Everything about it, from the visual cues together with sound, to the exercises using actual words from the start, has worked so well for her.
10/10 TTRS is simple and effective.
10/10 TTRS is very thorough and repetitive. It has a good method for learning and retention.
8/10 TTRS offers clear instructions, is easy to follow, and provides incremental instruction.
10/10 The lessons are short and TTRS offers additional spelling and reading support through the way it is presented.
10/10 I have seen huge benefits in my child's spelling thanks to TTRS. I also believe typing is a great life skill.
10/10 This is a great program for my son with dyslexia. His typing improved and he enjoyed keyboarding! The feedback for teachers was very thorough.
10/10 TTRS is great for easy grading and convenience. I didn't have to fight my son to do it. He rather enjoyed doing the lessons on his own!
10/10 I have seen my daughter's reading and understanding of phonetics increase greatly through using this program. Learning keyboarding skills is just a side benefit!
10/10 TTRS offers short lessons with no distractions and teaches actual words. It's easy to follow thanks to the animated hands, and has a logical progression. It's online, so there's no software to worry about.
10/10 I bought this for my 10 year old grandson because he struggles with writing and spelling. We homeschool, and he is loving this. He asks to do TTRS first thing in the morning, and keeps going until I make him stop. We are seeing improvement already.
9/10 The program loads easily, my son likes it and his typing skills are developing well.
10/10 I have recommended TTRS to several friends with dyslexic children. I feel like it is teaching my son typing skills, along with helping to solidify spelling and reading for him. The program progresses and moves at a pace that makes sense to him.
10/10 TTRS is a great way to learn typing skills and the spelling of important words. I love it for my dyslexic children.
10/10 My boys really didn't want a cartoony typing lesson. This one has been perfect for their learning style.
10/10 I tell all of my students about TTRS for home use.
10/10 TTRS works well for my dyslexic sons. They not only learn typing but also spelling.
10/10 My daughter is in 4th grade and we just started using this program. I can already see the benefits. She is not going to have bad habits that she will have to undo. I love the visual instruction as well as the auditory element. She was frustrated the first couple days because she wanted to "hand peck" but now she is seeing why it's so important to learn correct position from the start. We will continue to use this program. I would definitely recommend it.
10/10 My son needed help and motivaton to practice reading. My daughter needed help with spelling. They both were asking to learn to type so they can type their papers instead of write everything by hand. Touch-type Read Spell has been the perfect solution! I've seen marked improvement in my son's reading, my daughter's spelling, and they are learning to type! We are all big fans.
9/10 This programme is very good and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others. I have also found TTRS's customer support very satisfactory.
8/10 We really like this program. I think it works well for kids who struggle with reading and spelling.
10/10 TTRS is a perfect program for my children.
8/10 TTRS teaches solid typing skills for life.
10/10 We've tried and completed a few free programs, but with this one learning seems to stick best. My older kids are asking to do it now because my younger two are better at typing than they are! It has also really helped my youngest with dyslexia and doesn't make her feel like a baby. She's learning to type, not review basics :).
10/10 I've been using TTRS with all 3 boys for the last week. It's early days but the really short modules with scores at the end spur them on each time. My youngest is dyslexic and he doesn't look at it as learning, but rather gaining a new skill. This makes him much more willing to do it alongside his brothers. It's a life long skill they are gaining.
10/10 TTRS is great! My 14 year old stays engaged and is learning to type correctly and quickly, and I love the audio. I've told so many people about it and how positive it has been for my dyslexic daughter.
10/10 My dyslexic kids can actually accomplish something with TTRS.
8/10 I think TTRS is a good program to teach typing and spelling. It appears to be quite simple.
10/10 I like the on-screen hands and how the programme shows the finger positions for each letter to be typed, together with saying the letter or word. My son has started slowly and appears to be progressing well.
10/10 The instructions are very clear and my daughter, who is very slow in following instructions, gets it. She actually enjoys practising with TTRS every day.
7/10 I currently have one 5th grade student with dyslexia using this program and he seems to be more productive on it than any other typing program I have tried.
10/10 I'm so happy to have found this program. I use it with my middle schooler who struggles with spelling. We were both getting so frustrated and it's disheartening to do spelling below your age level. I told her we were stopping spelling and would be doing typing instead. Since her older sister did a typing program, this seemed fine to her. I only refer to it as her typing program when we discuss assignments but her spelling is definitely improving! Will she be entering the spelling bee? No. But her writing assignments go much more smoothly and she's more confident about her spelling now. I'm about to renew for a third year.
10/10 I have been using TTRS for my daughter who is dyslexic and it has helped her tremendously.
10/10 This program has been a great learning tool for my son who is 11, has ADD, dyslexia, and Asperger's. I introduced it to him as a tool to help him learn how to type. I said nothing about the spelling. I simply set a timer for 20 minutes and tell him to see how much he can get done during that time. After 6 months, he is now flying through the lessons! His typing speed has increased, but more importantly, his ability to spell has improved. He is working on spelling without realizing it, so he is relaxed instead of stressing out. I am very thankful to have discovered this program!
10/10 Thanks to TTRS all three of my students are now up and running, or shall I say typing!! I can't say enough about this wonderful program.
TTRS is a simple idea that is very well executed. It has a strong theoretical background, with a clean interface, and lots of flexibility in its presentation that can be configured to individual needs. A welcome update to a tried and tested resource.
10/10 I really like TTRS! I use it and my kids do too!
10/10 It seems to be paced just right for my 10 year old son!
10/10 TTRS is one of the best online systems for teaching keyboard skills that I've come across.
10/10 TTRS is great! I like that there are no gimmicks, just typing. Plus, it's easy. There are lots of levels and it progresses at just the right pace. It also combines OG (Orton and Gillingham) words to spell. If your children happen to be dyslexic like mine are, this is very helpful. Typing is one of the most important skills a childvcan have, and TTRS combines spelling and typing. The words/letters to type are read aloud by a jolly British chap, so if your child has difficulty reading or spelling, it doesn't factor into the program, and they have a great degree of success! My sons use it with no fuss.
10/10 This program really seems to work.
10/10 My daughter loves this program!
9/10 I have read many posts about the benefits of TTRS. I am half-way through the course and am taking it myself to encourage my 12 year old daughter with her own spelling and touch typing. My daughter has mild / moderate hearing loss and struggles with spelling and sounds. This course reinforces all of the phonetic spelling sound rules. I haven't read any other comments from deaf learners about the benefits for children and adults with hearing loss, but TTRS works! As an adult learner I am thoroughly enjoying it and would recommend it to other parents too.
10/10 TTRS was the best thing we did for my son. He is now 13 and took the course in Year 6 during which time he came on leaps and bounds! I'd highly recommend this program!
10/10 This programme has been a huge help to my severely dyslexic son. Before starting TTRS, he believed he could not write. Now he is writing brilliant stories, scripts, comic strips, etc.
10/10 TTRS is easy to use, I like the short modules, and it seems to be working. The online access is great so pupils can work on it at home and in their own time if they are disciplined.
8/10 It's still very early days for us, but I can see my daughter becoming empowered by this course.
10/10 My daughter struggles with spelling but is very motivated to use this program.
10/10 My daughter, who can't spell, is very motivated to use this program.
10/10 This is a great resource for homeschoolers! We love it because teaching at home comes with many challenges. With TTRS you can combine different learning styles into one, and it allows for more ways to connect your children with what they need to put into their memory! Thanks TTRS.
10/10 Wow. In three days we've seen a positive improvement in our son's confidence and his ability to grasp the material. He said "Mom, I'm meeting my goal! I love this. Thank you mom!" He's an 11 years old boy who didn't speak until he was 5. The TTRS program has been amazing for him.
10/10 I've used TTRS with the kids before and it's good!
10/10 TTRS is excellent because it works. My daughter used it and she loves reading now!
10/10 If I meet anyone who has dyslexic children, I tell them about TTRS!
10/10 This is such a well organised programme. It is really helpful and very good for children who need extra help with reading, spelling and writing. Thank you!
10/10 My son finds this course easy to follow. The levels are short enough for him not to get bored, and repetitive enough for him to remember.
10/10 I find TTRS correlates well with remedial spelling lessons.
9/10 Our students are enjoying using TTRS and their typing skills are developing well.
10/10 TTRS is easy to use and children are enthusiastic about it.
9/10 TTRS works great. I like the multisensory approach.
10/10 TTRS helps speed up students' skills in learning new words and enjoy typing at the same time. I've also found it helps them to learn how to sit up properly.
10/10 My son was diagnosed with dyslexia this summer. This program is a great way to incorporate learning how to type and repetition, which is important for him to learn. Even better, he looks forward to doing his typing every day.
10/10 My students are very enthusiastic about TTRS, and I can clearly see a progression. I also love the fact that they are practicing spelling and reading without even noticing it.
10/10 TTRS is working really well for my son with dyslexia. It is easy for me to have him do on his own, and easy for me to monitor.
10/10 My son is dyslexic and could not spell many words before he began this program. He can spell better than ever now and thanks to TTRS is continuing to learn and grow. As far as he's concerned, he is just learning how to type, but his increased spelling ability is coming across in his writing. Thank you for helping my child!
9/10 TTRS is an excellent resource, with proven results.
10/10 I think TTRS is a great product and I can see the improvement my daughter has made already.
10/10 This is an excellent online tool to learn touch typing. I have already recommended it to friends and family.
10/10 TTRS is an excellent product that really helped my daughter.
10/10 We've had feedback that TTRS is a valuable resource for some of the children who have been using it.
9/10 The kids love this program and it is working.
10/10 My kids love TTRS and are excited to log in every day.
10/10 We use TTRS three times a week and it is a great program. It definitely helps both with touch-typing and spelling.
10/10 I like TTRS because it is more than just a touch-typing tutor. No adult supervision is needed - and students can't be made wrong which is important to a dyslexic learner. The only thing that a human can do is gently remind them about which finger on which key. Students take ownership of the process, in the same way they do an X-box game etc.
10/10 I think this program is excellent. The boys who have been doing it have become more confident spellers as well as learning to touch type.
8/10 TTRS is a great program and my daughter has done well with it.
10/10 As a school teacher and a parent of a child that has used TTRS, I know it is beneficial to children who have difficulties with reading and spelling because of dyslexia. TTRS is a great additional learning tool.
9/10 TTRS is easy to use with short modules so they can do a little every day. It also gives great immediate feedback.
10/10 This program is really helpful because it teaches a vital life skill for young people. It's easy to use and I wish it had been around when I was at school! I have seen pupils benefit from using TTRS and have also had positive feedback from parents.
10/10 My experience with TTRS has been really positive.
10/10 I've been teaching this programme for over 10 years to students/parents with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, ASD. Although it can sometimes take time for a learner to 'get to grips' with co-ordination of the finger work, with a little patience they have always succeeded.
10/10 TTRS has been an invaluable addition to our homeschooling! The typing has helped my dysgraphic son enormously and his spelling is slowly improving through daily exposure to TTRS. This is a programme we intend to use for a good while to come.
10/10 Even if a student is not dyslexic, TTRS helps with spelling. It is also helpful for students with mild to moderate disability.
10/10 This innovative product combines the development of several skills at once: typing, reading, and spelling. So far, my dyslexic son is using it to build knowledg and reinforce the simple words, so he doesn't lapse back. I wish we had used this about 2 years ago, when he was in 4th grade, or even sooner.
10/10 I think TTRS is an excellent programme! A thorough, well devised course. My 14 year old son is doing very well with it.
10/10 I feel this program is well presented and a wonderful way to learn how to type.
10/10 My 6 year old first grader is doing very well and enjoying the Touch-type Read Spell program. It's very simple to use and she seems to zoom right through the lessons with ease. As a parent, it's easy to get a specific report on what she has been learning and I can print a record of the progress if need be. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting their child to learn the basics of typing. It's especially great for beginner readers as they quickly move to short words and sentences.
10/10 My daughter is much more willing to do this typing program than the other ones we tried. We bought it based on recommendations for it being helpful for dyslexic children and have just started using it.
10/10 I am so thankful for TTRS! I purchased this program very tentatively for my 14 year-old. We wanted it for typing and because my son was dreadfully behind in spelling. I had chatted with one of the representatives of TTRS and she spoke highly of the way that that the program taught the student how to spell without "teaching the student how to spell." Well, she was right! We are only a few months in and my son has gained more confidence than I have been able to teach him in YEARS with other curricula. And, he can type! The best thing is he doesn't know that he's learning to spell. That's a big thing for him. Spelling has been such a blow to his confidence that he was striking out before he picked up the bat, so to speak. With this, he's learning so fast and so well that he hasn't had the chance to second guess himself, so he's really, truly, finally learning! I cannot recommend this product enough!
10/10 We did a trial of the TTRS program and among our participants were three dyslexic students who had basically hit a wall in their learning. They loved the program! They became very competitive with it too! It was awesome to see. They transitioned to Junior High this year and continue to be successful. I have already recommended the program to several other schools in our area.
10/10 I've tried a couple of other typing programs, but my daughter would always use the wrong fingers just to win the 'games.' She has some spelling and reading issues so this program seemed to be a good fit. She likes TTRS and is using the correct fingers. I'm very pleased and we will continue to use it.
10/10 This is an absolutely fabulous computer program. My son used it at school and it was amazing how quickly he learned to type. His reading greatly improved as well.
10/10 I have seen a REMARKABLE improvement in my son's reading and spelling ability in the 3 weeks he's been using this program. Thank you TTRS!
10/10 I love this tool for typing and reading reinforcement.
10/10 I decided to try TTRS for my girls ages 11 and 13. So far, I don't even have to remind them to get it done! They love this program. At first I was a little hesitant because of the cost, but now I think it was worth it.
10/10 My daughter has been using this program for a few weeks now. She is enjoying TTRS, and finding that the course is helping her spelling and typing. When she first began the program, her typing skills were non-existent and she struggled with spelling. When she went back and did a review of the lessons she had already done, she was receiving 95%+ on the spelling assessments.
10/10 I came across the Touch-type Read and Spell (TTRS) programme in 2009 and contacted the TTRS agent here in Ireland to arrange to have a trial. Being a touch-typist myself, I am aware of the benefits of having such a skill. For students such as ours, who all have a diagnosis of a Mild Intellectual Disability, help in this area is a real bonus, particularly as our society now relies so heavily on this type of communication. Our students practice with TTRS daily as much as possible. I aim to have them complete 5 modules as a base – some do more, some less. All have a degree of success, some surprisingly so. It improves co-ordination on the keyboard, as well as knowledge of where letters are, and the various functions of different keys. There is a sense of achievement on completion of each module, and of course on receiving a certificate at the end of the year - not to mention the spelling and reading of different words. Some students really like to be focused in this manner, particularly those who are on the autistic spectrum.
10/10 This year I added Touch Type Read Spell TTRS to my 3rd grader's school load and he LOVES it. He has so much fun doing it everyday and I love it too! Learning to type is a very important skill to pick up early because it can make all work done on a computer quicker. Plus, he's working on spelling and reading at the same time. One more bonus is he's also learning to play piano so I tell him when he's practicing piano that it's like TTRS, you need both hands to press the keys and your eyes are up reading notes. We're definitely continuing to use TTRS and telling our friends about it. Thank you!
10/10 We have been using TTRS for a month and so far the children are enjoying it.
I bought TTRS after reading the reviews. My son is dyslexic. Reading was not his favorite thing, as it was extremely confusing and hard for him. After a year of TTRS his typing is 60wpm, 90% accuracy and his reading skills have improved as well. The program is well organized, systematic and engaging.
I teach an adult learner who was previousy unable to read. I am now seeing vast improvements in both his reading and spelling skills.
10/10 My 14 year-old has a very slow processing speed. He is showing improvements in understanding when he reads thanks to TTRS. He has also found it useful to follow the Alpha to Omega spelling techniques, using alternative forms of alphabets like wooden Bana-gram letters.
10/10 This is a great program and has helped my daughter so much. I highly recommend TTRS if you have a struggling reader, speller, or need to strengthen phonics knowledge.
I have recently renewed my subscription for the TTRS program because it has definitely helped us. My son is 10 and dyslexic. He does at least one hour of typing every school day and it has helped his reading ability and also relieved a lot of stress for me as his teacher. We tried some workbooks and such that were said to be helpful for dyslexia, but the online typing has been the most time and cost efficient approach.
My 12 year-old dyslexic son has been using the TTRS program for several weeks now and he really enjoys seeing his score and progress in the dashboard after each lesson. The TTRS program starts off with simple VCV words like hat, cap, sit. The words are also dictated to the student. I really like this feature because my son isn't just copy-typing random words or letters, he is learning to spell. The TTRS program is different from other programs in that is starts off on a basic level and then works its way up through the common spelling rules and patterns. This is a huge benefit to me because I feel like I am saving time by knocking out spelling and typing together. This program is not flashy. It is very straightforward so all of the focus remains on the typing and spelling. There are no games but my son doesn't seem to be bothered by that. He looks forward for his lessons and logs into the program by himself. We have been very satisfied with our purchase and I plan on using this program with my other children. If you have a struggling reader or dyslexic, this is a must have resource! It would also be great for younger students who are learning how to read.
It has been a great achievement for our daughter to complete the TTRS course. The skills she learned will help her throughout school and into college.
Summer is a great time to teach your dyslexic child to type! We're a fan of this typing program because it is multi-sensory and introduces sounds and symbols in the same sequence as most Orton Gillingham programs.
We HIGHLY recommend TTRS to all of our clients at the Children's Dyslexia Center of Georgia, the Children's Dyslexia Center of Arizona, and the Children's Dyslexia Center of Colorado.
My daughter is 8 and is severely dyslexic. She's now on level 3 of TTRS and it is really helping her. I have it written into her IEP at school and would recommend it to anyone.
TTRS has helped my son tremendously. Thank you very much for this great program!
My 9 year-old son has gone from a child that had to ask me how to spell every word, to a child who loves to write stories. At the beginning of the school year he would have the correct first letter and correct last letter in a word and all letters in between mixed up. He hated to write! It's like having a different child thanks to TTRS. And he types so fast! Thank you!
Congratulations Conor on completing all 24 Levels of this wonderful course! Although you were often tired after a long day at school, you persevered each week to learn this new skill. Half way through the course your speed improved and you began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Accuracy was important to you throughout the course, achieving 100% became your weekly target and when that wasn't possible you scored in the high 90's each time. Hard work always yields good results and this success should inspire you as you work towards your Junior Certificate in the coming years. I wish you every success in the future. What a wonderful life skill you now have. Keep up the hard work and continue to set goals for yourself.
I'm so glad I was told about this program. My 9 year old son loves TTRS. It's fun and challenging. He has only been doing it for a few weeks and we can see such an improvement in typing already. I highly recommend getting a subscription.
I work as a Resource Teacher with a large number of students at the National Learning Network in Navan, Co. We cater for learners with a variety of learning difficulties including Autistic Spectrum Disorders, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and Down syndrome. I found that kids who had been experiencing difficulties with conventional educational tools engaged extremely well with the Touch-type Read and Spell course. They were able to work at their own pace and gained positive feedback at every stage. Working with TTRS helped learners increase their vocabulary and improve basic grammar and spelling skills, as well as learn keyboarding. This course creates positive reinforcement and improves learning motivation and stamina. I would highly recommend TTRS for teachers to use with their students of all ages and ability levels. The Certificate of Completion is also a wonderful outcome for our learners at the end of all of their hard work.
We have loved the TTRS program so far. My kids use it EVERY school day and their typing, reading, and spelling skills have improved dramatically in less than 3 months.
My son was entering 5th grade last fall when he was diagnosed as dyslexic. His handwriting was not good, and his spelling was poor. TTRS is a typing program, yes, but it is so much more! We just renewed our subscription for a second year because I use it as an elective, and my son has 2 more levels to complete. That in itself is a testimonial to the value I see in this program. The true test of his abilities came at the end of this year when he wanted to type his research report for school. He is so proud of his new skills, and I am proud of him! The TTRS program is the best one I've seen and although my son does get tired of it sometimes, he has definitely seen the benefits, and the repetition within the program is enough to get the lessons to stick. The skills he is learning will help him for the rest of his life. What more can be said about a product than that?
We have used Touch-type Read and Spell here at Scoil Baile Nua since 2011. During this time we've found it to be an excellent resource in tackling literacy difficulties as well as teaching touch-typing, which I consider to be an invaluable skill. Our students respond well to the programme and are motivated to advance through the levels. They experience improvement in their reading, spelling and grammar, which leads to increased confidence and self-esteem. We use the TTRS programme for children with a large array of learning difficulties, including dyslexia, dyspraxia, and ADHD, as well as with some foreign students to improve their English. The multi-sensory method combined with typing can improve fine motor skills as well as literacy. TTRS is very popular with our teachers and I would recommend it to any school looking for an aid to literacy improvement and/or looking to teach keyboarding skills.
TTRS is an integral part of our learning experience. My children use this daily to improve their typing and spelling skills. The program has greatly boosted my children's confidence in typing and has improved their spelling ability. I have recommended it to many of my friends who have gone on to purchase it and incorporate it into their children's educational experience.
Conor Mackey finished the TTRS course today after almost 2.5 years of attending our class in Leixlip Library. A huge congratulations to Conor for his perseverance, commitment and hard work. We have watched Conor grow from a shy and reluctant student, into a confident young man who will go on to achieve anything he wants through hard work and determination.
Amazing progress from a young man who set himself a goal and then achieved it, within nine months. He uses his touch-typing skills in class, much to the envy of others, who are amazed at how fast he can get work done! Congratulations! You have acquired a valuable skill that will always benefit your learning. You have proved that 'with effort, you can indeed, learn anything.
My son gained both typing skills and confidence through the TTRS course. It's excellent!
This program has worked well for my boys. They both struggle with dyslexia and it is teaching them to type and spell at the same time!
This is such an excellent product! I just renewed it for the second year. My kids work on TTRS daily and their typing and spelling skills are amazing.
As a retired teacher of touch-typing, I am very impressed by this system, which I have used to help dyslexic sixth-form students.
I ordered this for my dyslexic and dysgraphic son as a more appropriate alternative to a widely used, free, online typing program. It has been exactly what he needed. The multi-sensory approach which includes auditory feedback was something we had never experienced before and it has changed my son's typing experience. He is much more engaged and will complete more than one lesson at a time. I also love that within a few lessons, the program uses real words to reinforce reading. I am very pleased with this course.
The TTRS program is great! My son is an auditory learner and this program not only shows him what to type but tells him - that is exactly what he needed! TTRS is not fun and flashy but it is effective and he doesn't mind doing it.
We have tried several open-source typing programs to help our daughter learn typing. All of them were a chore, but she enjoys using TTRS! It has helped with her spelling too - which has been a huge challenge for her.
Touch-Type, Read and Spell is one of the best typing programs for children with learning differences and dyslexia.
Since beginning TTRS a year ago, I have seen a major improvement in my 12 year old daughter's dyslexic tendencies, as well as in her spelling, retention and confidence. Plus, she's learning to type! I can't give enough praise for this program! It is well worth the investment, especially if your child struggles with dyslexia.
We are very pleased with TTRS in our home school. Our severely dysgraphic and dyslexic son became independent immediately thanks to this program. We love how the skills build gradually and the lessons are short.
I am a home school mom of 9 years and also an academic language therapist. My daughter is dyslexic and this is one of the best programs for typing I have seen and used. It has helped my daughter type using a very systematic approach that is necessary for a child who is dyslexic. It uses repetition so the brain can take in all of the information and create the correct motor memory. My daughter is also dysgraphic, so typing can be difficult for her because of the fine motor challenges. However, she has been able to succeed with Touch type Read and Spell. This is the only program I will ever use.
This program is wonderful. It is helping my dyslexic son in so many ways - even if he does not realize it! He's not just learning to type but cementing his spelling and grammar skills as well.
This program has been excellent for my child. He started using TTRS in August and since then his confidence in writing has soared! Thanks.
This is a very straightforward program. No bells and whistles. I think that's why my daughter is so dedicated to it. She says, "Mom, it's not a game. I'm really learning here!" It is still early days, but she does seem to be benefiting from the practice with spelling. Also, she loves the British accent! We would recommend this to other families, especially those who are dealing with dyslexia, as my daughter is.
We have only been using this curriculum for a month, but I am already seeing a difference in my reluctant, late reader. My son is 9 years old and his confidence has really blossomed. He seems a lot more excited about reading and is even attempting to spell more often. He really loves seeing his score immediately, and brags to his sister, who is also using TTRS, when his grade is higher!
My daughter is 12 and Touch-type Read Spell has been a nice addition to her work. It starts out very basic and then progresses as she does. It has built her confidence and I'm happy with our choice.
We love this program! I only have one child doing TTRS and he has dyslexia and dysgraphia. We decided this year to begin a typing program so I figured one that helps with spelling would be a win-win. So far we have been very pleased and my son really enjoys it.
This program has helped my 9 year old dyslexic son immensely with spelling and reading!
When we started this program my 9 year old son was stuck reading simple books. He is now reading at grade level after completing only 4 TTRS levels! I am a firm believer in this amazing program and will be getting it for my younger son when he is old enough.
TTRS is fantastic. I used it over 20 years ago at school and I'm more confident in my reading and writing because of it. All schools should have this program.
My son truly enjoys typing with TTRS! He just started the program about a month ago. He works on it every day for about 10 minutes, although some days he does it longer. His comfort level with typing on the computer is definitely increasing, and he says "It is fun!"
My daughter is mildly dyslexic, but also has a visual processing disorder, and this program has been wonderful for her! The short modules leave her feeling victorious and the colored fingers, indicating which finger to use for which letter, have been extremely helpful. I can't recommend this program enough!
My 10 year-old is dyslexic and uses this program. We love it.
I've been using it with my 9 year-old son who is dyslexic. He has shown great improvement after 6 months of use with a 3 month summer break in between.
I love TTRS. I've tried multiple programs for my students who are 12-14 years-old but they have been too childish, didn't save their progress, or just focused on rote typing skills. TTRS is such a nice change. The students looked forward to typing. It kept them interested. The scores at the end created a friendly challenge between the students.
We love TTRS! My dyslexic son doesn't mind doing it at all and is already becoming a decent typist.
The aspect of TTRS that has most impressed us has been its ability to enhance reading and spelling, as well as develop faster keyboard fingers... Read full article
I can thoroughly recommend this program! My son who is dyspraxic and dyslexic started TTRS when he was 10 in anticipation of high school. He did really well in his end of year 7 exams because he typed them on a laptop provided by the school. He also, after completing the TTRS course - improved his maths levels and writing subjects for the first time. We were amazed!
My daughter has trouble with reading and transposing letters. She gets overwhelmed and has little confidence. I bought the TTRS system in hopes that it would help her. She loves it! She is learning to type and her spelling is improving as well as her reading. She enjoys doing the exercises and loves the applause that she receives when she has accomplished something. This was a great find and purchase!
I purchased Touch-type Read Spell for my teenage son who struggles with dyslexia and dysgraphia. It is now a part of his daily homework routine. My son had asked for an adult typing course - not an animated "baby" one. It really helps with not looking at the keys and you can see immediately how well you are doing. It is an essential component for high school and we will continue to use it. I recommend TTRS to friends, family and those who ask how to support students with dyslexia.
This program is quick and effective! My kids are learning spelling without even realizing it and are so excited when they type sentences. We have tried other game-style programs, and they were just "eh". This isn't a fancy video game, it's an effective and fun learning tool. As a previous classroom educator and now homeschool mom, I am very impressed with TTRS and would certainly recommend it.
This is a good typing program and worth the cost. Correct hand position is emphasized. Sufficient repetition is given to learn the keys. My student has dyslexia and uses an Orton-Gillingham approach for Language Arts. I was happy to see that the spelling in this typing program follows the Orton-Gillingham sequence as well, so his is working with the most simple words (CVC) as he is learning the basics of typing, and the words increase with complexity as he gains typing as a skill. It makes sense. We've tried other programs which are less expensive, but were very disappointed. TTRS, however, is a good use of our time and I highly recommended it.
I love TTRS. My son is 8 and he is doing great. This program has really made learning to type easy and he is getting a boost with his spelling and reading too. We plan to continue with it for some time to come. Thanks TTRS!
I wanted a typing program that was easy to use, engaging, and something my three middle-school age children would like. TTRS is all of those things and more! The kids enjoy the program and are learning typing skills at their own pace. I can track their progress easily, and love that there is no fluff. I love that their spelling skills are kept sharp and reinforced, too.
I stumbled upon TTRS while I was looking for a typing program for my 9 year old son. I was intrigued by the idea that this course does more than just teach typing. I wanted my son to learn to type because the physical part of writing is hard for him, but he also has some issues that make reading and spelling difficult. I was impressed by the claims made that TTRS can improve reading and spelling, but somewhat hesitant out of concern that it would be boring for him since it is not animated as most programs are. Regardless, I ended up buying TTRS and have been very pleased. My son enjoys the lessons and the repetition is great. It has without a doubt improved his reading and spelling. I actually appreciate the simplistic nature of the program and am glad to see that he doesn't need all sorts of bells and whistles to stay engaged. I highly recommend this program for anyone looking for typing instruction, especially if they could use a boost in reading and spelling.
My son who has dyslexia has been using this program for two years. It has benefited his literacy skills enormously. It changed the way he thinks about spelling. He spells much better typing than in writing, but better than that, he has developed a unique skillset that will serve him well into the future. The multi sensory approach has been very effective.
This is a great touch-typing programme for people who are dyslexic learners. My son can now type his work and it has also helped with his spelling. I highly recommend using the programme with a tutor and at home too!
We have tried several other typing programs and all were great disappointments. My 13, 11, and 8 year-old all love Touch-type Read and Spell. They will even ask to work on their modules!
I am a special education teacher by training and a home education veteran. Two of my children have dyslexia so I have been in almost constant search of curriculum to assist with this learning style. This program meets several needs for my students. It gives them some independence where in many subjects they struggle with this. It reaches several sensory modalities, whereas other programs I have tried do not. My son doing it right now loves it and if given the choice, it is one of the first things he will do each morning.
Touch-type Read and Spell is awesome because the hand placement on the screen shows the child (or anyone using it) exactly how and where to place their fingers to type. WE LOVE IT! This program made learning to type a whole lot easier and less frustrating for my kids than a more "fun" program. I highly recommend it.
My kids love this program and usually choose it as the first thing they do for their school day! After a couple of weeks, they are already typing well. I am happy with TTRS!
Learning to touch-type is one of the most useful skills a child with dyslexia can acquire. Touch-type Read and Spell is a tried and tested method.
Touch-type Read and Spell has been a wonderful tool to help my son with typing and spelling. If you have a child with dyslexia and dysgraphia, you know how important typing skills are, and every bit of practice helps! He has gained so much confidence with his writing!
My son is a reluctant keyboarder. I've tried other typing programs and it's always fizzled out due to lack of interest. TTRS had such great reviews that I had to give it a try. My son now voluntarily gets online to do his lessons. Major breakthrough! He's loving it which makes me very happy. He said it's easy and he enjoys doing the lessons. I'm seeing his typing speed go up and his confidence rising. I'm so glad I took the plunge and ordered it..
I really like the TTRS program. Both my boys enjoy it and can complete it without any help. It was a great investment!
My 9 year old is using TTRS now and making great progress. His 7 year old sister will start soon because she has seen his efforts. I especially like how quickly the program moves from key strokes to words and sentences.
My daughter is going to be 10 in a few days. She started the Touch-type Read and Spell course a little over a month ago and she loves it. We couldn't have been happier with our purchase. She practices every day and it is always her idea. It's easy to use and interactive, a great buy!
I ordered TTRS immediately after seeing it. I had been thinking about how to teach keyboarding to my ten year old son who has dyspraxia. Printing and cursive are hard and tedious for him but he enjoys the TTRS course and is so proud when he sees his scores. He needs the repetition of spelling the words also. I'm so happy that we found it!
We have been using this program since November 2014. We LOVE it because it goes slowly and allows my son to have a multi-sensory experience: auditory, visual and kinestetic learning. I appreciate that it works by following a dyslexia-friendly course. My son no longer complains about learning to type!
I am so pleased with TTRS. My son actually likes it and feels empowered by his accomplishments. He can work independently and at his own pace. I look forward to this program helping him make strides despite his dyslexia.
This program is working great for us. We are using TTRS for our 6 year-old and he is enjoying it. He wants to "do his typing" each day. Our 4 year old daughter watches with keen interest. The way it is designed really does include reading and spelling and not just typing.
I love this product. My daughter is dyslexic and I can see an improvement in her work since she started the TTRS program.
After doing some research on other typing games, we decided to give Touch-type Read and Spell a chance. It has been a great addition to my son's schooling. He has an astigmatism and dyslexia, so getting him interested in anything that has to do with reading is usually a chore. So far he has really enjoyed the lessons. He likes trying to beat his last score. I like that each lesson builds off of the last. And each lesson can be redone. It's teaching him capitalization, punctuation, sentences etc. Unlike other typing games that just teach how to push the keys, this program does what it says: "touch-type, read and spell."
My son has been using TTRS for about 3 weeks. What makes this course unique is it starts with vowels instead of the home row. It wasn't long before he was typing words and then sentences. The hands on the screen have reduced his need to look at the keyboard. The letters are large and presented one line at a time combined with audio "r-u-n" etc. It also offers a review of words learned that are dictated, encouraging learning of correct spelling. Although it is lacking games, the frustration level is low so that my son is happy to do it.
My child loves TTRS. What I love more is he is practicing spelling and reading at the same time.
We love the TTRS program! There are no games and no gimmicks, but rather a straight forward instructional program my girls still enjoy. We chose it since it is designed to help dyslexics learn to type, as well as assist in reading and spelling. I am using this program with my dyslexic and non-dyslexic children, ages 10 and 11 and they find it very useful.
We've tried several computer typing programs and one paper based one. Touch-type Read and Spell is the only program that has motivated my student. With this program, he's practicing what he learns instead of falling back into old habits when typing outside of the program.
My family absolutely loves Touch-type Read and Spell! It is exactly what we needed and more and I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to learn to type with extra spelling practice.
The Touch-type Read & Spell program is absolutely tremendous. My 13-year old right-brain learner is enjoying it and having success. We have tried and done many different typing programs over the years without a great deal of success. These lessons are super short. It seems she's done before she even begins. This means it doesn't make it a drag to do. She has now completed 13 modules and only clocked a total logged in time of 71 minutes. She started typing actual words in her second lesson and was thrilled. A voice is saying everything she is supposed to type. She gets the visual, the audio and the tactile all together. It is a winning combination. She is excited about doing the lessons and we couldn't be more pleased with the program.
The TTRS program has gotten my child off to the best start with typing, better than several other products we had tried. He was quickly typing full words and making fewer mistakes.
I was excited when we discovered Touch-type Read and Spell (TTRS). We are a small, rural pre-K thru 12th grade school located on an island in Alaska. The program is easy to use with clear instructions and performance feedback. It sets a tone for all of our students. They like the course. It reinforces letter sounds for those who need extra help, provides visual and auditory input, and even students with severe attention challenges are motivated and self-directed when using the program. TTRS is a great tool to incorporate with other researched based literacy instruction to support continued student growth. I have recommended this program to others in our district and will continue to do so without hesitation.
