A homeschool typing program we love

Vivian, Homeschooler of a child with dyslexia

I have a ten year-old son who has dyslexia. My daughter is in eighth grade and she also uses Touch-type Read and Spell. She is not dyslexic but the program helps with her keyboarding practice and spelling. We homeschool and work on a small budget - almost everything we use is free - but TTRS is a program we happily pay for. My children look forward to their typing lessons.

Sydney, Parent of a twice-exceptional child

I purchased the Touch-type Read and Spell program for my daughter who was having difficulty with the typing course she was using at school. She’s in a gifted program but also struggles with dyslexia and slow processing. I knew my daughter was an auditory learner and that the voice prompts in TTRS would help. TTRS makes it much easier for her to type the right letters.

help my son write

Amy, Parent of a child with dyslexia

We used the Touch-type Read and Spell course to teach my ten-year-old son typing, in order to help him with his writing. Since he learned typing, he’s more able to express himself in writing. He’s also more confident because he knows he can keep up in the classroom and do homework and other school assignments on the computer. His typing skills have improved significantly - he’s even trying coding lessons this year!

TTRS is a flexible program that meets a variety of learning needs.

Teacher, Sixth form

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 program I've used.

Teacher, Secondary school

TTRS was recommended to me by a colleague, and I'd also used it at a previous school. My experience with the program has always been very positive. For the students who have used it consistently, it has had a huge impact on their success.

Teacher, Primary school

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.

Specialist Teacher, High school

My daughter is a perfectionist who wants to be the fastest typist in the household. My son is a different learner and is not concerned with typing speed. Both of them have started taking science subjects on TTRS and really like them. I also like that their typing lessons are reinforcing the vocabulary and concepts we're learning in other areas of our school day!

Maureen, Parent and homeschooler of 3 children

One of the things I like most about the Touch-type Read and Spell Course are the subjects. They have technical terms and definitions from science and math that you can practise typing. The vocabulary is something I can really benefit from.
