My son has dysgraphia and typing has helped him with his writing

Jennifer, Parent of a child with dysgraphia

My youngest son who is 11 right now has dysgraphia. He’s a very smart child who can write when he’s dictating as his thoughts are free-flowing, but the physical act of writing really frustrates him and gets in the way of his self-expression. I read about how typing might help with the dysgraphia and he started using Touch-type Read and Spell about three or four years ago. Since then, he’s just done wonderfully and that’s why we keep signing up.

Adult learner with dyslexia who runs a guest house

Anna, Adult learner with mild dyslexia

I have mild dyslexia. Unfortunately, there was no help for me when I was younger, so I’ve always just struggled along. I run a guest house and when I write on the computer, it’s easier to cover up errors. In the first few weeks of Touch-type Read and Spell, I didn’t think I was getting much better. Then, when I was typing a letter out, I felt wow, I seem to be typing differently. Typing felt more automatic and I wasn’t overthinking the words and how to spell them, I was just doing it. I was typing faster and my fingers knew where they were going.

Sally is a teacher in an after school special needs program where students use TTRS

Sally, Teacher in a special needs program

I run a special group on Wednesdays for children from local schools. While most of the students have learning differences, we have English as an Additional Language (EAL) learners and children with motor-skills difficulties too. Those who struggle with literacy skills benefit the most from TTRS. It gives them confidence and is a learning activity they look forward to. The children are always saying ‘When are we going to do our touch-typing?’

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, Middle 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, Elementary 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

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

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.
