Dyslexia and touch-typing
Learning touch-typing is an important skill for any child, but especially for a child with dyslexia.

What is Dyslexia?

Beneficial effects of touch-typing and dyslexia

Remedial teachers advise children with dyslexia to learn touch-typing with the use of a laptop in the classroom. Dyslexic children, who master touch-typing can follow the pace in the class better.
To be able to learn touch-typing well, dyslexic children must do a suitable touch-typing course.

We’ve experienced that a child with dyslexia can complete our interactive touch-typing course successfully. To learn touch-typing with our TypeReflex® means learning in a unique and effective way.
The TICKEN touch-typing course does not use texts on paper during the touch-typing lessons. Therefore, your child does not always need to switch between reading text and computer screen, but sees the letters/words to type on the screen. An important advantage for children with dyslexia who want to learn touch-typing.

Positive influence of touch-typing

Learning touch-typing is a learning process with a proven positive impact on the development of letter and word images.
These beneficial effects arise due to:
  • Additional training of letter-sound coupling.
  • Interactive exercises with detection and correction when typing a wrong key.
  • Repeating the letters and letter combinations that form words.

Positive effect on language through touch-typing

A child with dyslexia experiences language as difficult and often runs behind. Thanks to the positive effects of touch-typing, they experience language more positive, which is good for their confidence. The student learns the keys via the unique TypeReflex® learning method. That way, you learn by typing real words and not boring, nonsensical combinations of letters. It is the most effective way to learn touch-typing. It reduces the typing course time with 50%. This typing course is affordable: £77,50 including VAT. Optional is the handy learning tool Skinny Typehelp®, a unique skin which covers your keyboard and helps to increase your typing speed, because when you're learning to touch-type, you should only be looking at your screen. To help you with this, you as a TICKEN student can order the Skinny Typehelp® at a reduced price of £11,65 including VAT and with free delivery (normally £16,65). You can start immediately and you have 12 months access. As a parent, you can receive your child’s results after each lesson, allowing you to stay involved and to help motivate and encourage your child.

My own son already started at home with the private course and really enjoys it. As a parent I find the reminder useful: if nothing is done after five days, then an email is sent. That really helps.
