Why Teachers love the award winning TTRS course
Three skills in one solution
Students learn to type but they also benefit from improved spelling ability and a boost in reading fluency thanks to an underlying phonics program that informs core content.
It's easy to get started
There's no complicated training required and it is quick and easy for teachers to get set up on the platform. The intuitive and simple interface also means students find it a breeze to set up their profile and start typing right away!
It can be used in class or at home
TTRS offers a flexible solution that can be used for classroom-based learning, homework assignments or even extra credit. It also offers parents the chance to reinforce literacy skills at home and take a more active role in their child's learning.
It offers insights that can be used to inform teaching
Dashboards and reporting not only allow teachers to monitor user progress but also to seeing which words and spelling patterns they are struggling with and then focusing lessons on these ares.
It encourages self-directed learning
That means students require less guidance and teachers can take a step back to observe more children and help individuals who require extra attention. Mention self-pacing and confidence self-esteem here too.
It caters to different ability levels
Teachers with inclusive classrooms know the struggle of creating different lesson plans and resources so every learner can benefit. TTRS is self-paced and can be customized to meet the needs of every learners from those on the autistic spectrum to learners with visual or hearing impairment and students who struggle with dyslexia, dyspraxia or attention based difficulties.

Testimonials and reviews
This program is working great. We are using it for our 6 year old and he is enjoying it. He wants to "do my 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.
My family absolutely loves Touch Type Read and Spell! It is exactly what we needed and more!
I highly recommend this program to any one wanting to learn to type and have extra spelling practice.
I love this product. My daughter is dyslexic and I can see an improvement in her work since starting the program.
We love this program! No games, no gimmicks but rather straight forward instructional program yet my girls still enjoy it.
We chose this program since it is designed to help dyslexics learn to type as well as assists in reading and spelling.
I am using this program with both my dyslexic and non-dyslexic children, ages 10 and 11. Both find the program very useful and enjoy learning keyboarding.
