Learning to touch type brings many additional benefits to Special Needs individuals, and is often an invaluable, or even life changing, skill. Learning early benefits reading, spelling comprehension & vocabulary. It greatly reduces the need for handwriting, which is commonly a disliked or a challenging area, and errors can be corrected easily without original mistakes being apparent (producing neat written work).
The careful design and structure of our software programmes have made them popular with teachers working with other types of Special Needs, including Dyspraxia / Development Co-ordination Disorder (DCD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Asperger's, Semantic Pragmatic & other language disorders and Visual Impairment.
