The TTRS course engages your senses of seeing, hearing and touching. A kinesthetic approach is experienced:
" When I want to spell a word I just think where my fingers would go, it's like talking with my fingers."

Testimonials and Reviews
This program is excellent. My almost-seven year old has gained so much skill on the keyboard in a matter of weeks. I love this program. She is truly learning and enjoys sitting to practice.
We LOVE our TTRS subscription! I like that they can do it independently. My younger two like that they can see their grade and WPM with each lesson. My oldest has ASD, dyslexia and dysgraphia and is finally able to spell and write! He was so proud of himself when he discovered he could actually type comments while playing Minecraft and have other kids understand him.
Great program! My boys would rather do this than a spelling lesson! They learn words right from the start and the words get harder as they go.
My son doesn't even have to be reminded to do his typing --it's one aspect of homeschooling we don't argue about! He knows it only takes a few minutes, and with positive reinforcement and awards for levels completed he stays motivated. This is our second year using TTRS and we just renewed for a third. I tell other homeschool moms about the program because it's easy to use and reinforces spelling skills in addition to typing.
