TOUCH TYPING can assist with visual impairment or Specific Learning Difficulties in several ways:
Presentation - legibility of work and editing work is easier
Speed of Input – allowing the child to keep pace with the teacher
Visual Processing – touch typing reduces visual stress for a struggling writer/typist moving from book/keyboard to classroom writing board
Empowerment – good keyboarding skills promotes independence, confidence and success.
We concentrate on posture and height; plus correct finger positioning to enable accuracy, speed and prevention of physical problems.
We use TTRS amongst other touch typing programs. TTRS is a multisensory typing program that reinforces reading and spelling skills. If TTRS is required, parents pay for its monthly subscription (£10) but can access this program as often as wanted during this period.
Individuals, or small groups in a 1:5 teacher:pupil ratio, are taught not to look whilst typing to develop speed and accuracy. Joint sessions for parents and children can be organised. We then encourage students to develop their typing skills during spelling or creative typing sessions.
LAPTOP TRAINING is provided for both child and adult together. Sessions teach successful laptop use in school, computer organisation, familiarisation with word processing software and templates.
