The TTRS Method

A way of learning that uses multi-sensory keyboarding to support language skills development and help individuals in mastering subject content – based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach

How does the TTRS Method work?

Learners see, type, and hear text – and can pronounce target words and phrases alongside audio. The combination of diverse sensory input helps material ‘stick’ and the method makes use of modular lessons, repetition, and dictation exercises to reinforce learning.

No games.
No distractions.

The TTRS Course

The TTRS Course develops a learner’s procedural knowledge of English spelling and builds phonological awareness to support reading skills. This is accomplished via a structured program of phonics embedded within 24 keyboarding lessons of 31 modules each. Most phonics courses are aimed at children but TTRS offers a more grown-up approach for older children, adolescents, and adults.
