10/10 I chose TTRS as a typing program for my dyslexic daughter. She has only completed the first unit and already I can see her typing improving. I like the fact that it integrates hearing, seeing and spelling!
10/10 TTRS is a good course. It has proven to help my student with spelling and typing. My student likes it and is doing really well.
10/10 We decided to use TTRS because it is phonics-based, multi-sensory, and takes an Orton-Gillingham approach. We knew we would be able to set goals for students regarding completion and accuracy, and that the program covers both typing and spelling. Our experience has been good ... typing and spelling skills have improved to a much higher degree than we expected. We would highly recommend TTRS, particularly to those students who will be relying on assistive technology.
