Kids! Learn to Touch Type in just 10 Weeks!

Do you realise that almost all text your child will write during his or her life will be done on a keyboard?

“The ‘hunting and pecking’ of keys is frustrating and slow,” Wendy says. “By learning touch typing, students can increase their writing speed between 2 and 5 times, making it a skill that will improve their productivity for life. In fact studies have shown that university students can save over 300 hours of time by touch typing their work. Learning at a young age is important before the bad habits creep in.”

Learning to touch type with Type IT! means that even after 10 lessons, students will be able to always find the correct letter without thinking. It is just like learning to ride a bike.

The Type IT! course follows the National Literacy Strategy and so helps with literacy skills including spelling and word patterns. Highly recommended for children with dyslexia.

Wendy says, “Learning purely at home by rote can become boring. By coming to class each week where each lesson is fun and enjoyable, it ensures that motivation is maintained. We have seen excellent results in just a few lessons.”

  • Follows the National Literacy Strategy
  • Boosts confidence and self esteem
  • Fun motivational games
  • Once mastered, never forgotten!
  • Recommended for children with Dyslexia/Dyspraxia.
