Typing Skills Program
Evening sessions once per week – designed for Ages 7 to 12!
Using a structured and multi-sensory approach with an online software tool for instruction, our new and improved Typing Skills Program starts this September, one evening a week!
Proper typing technique impacts not just speed and accuracy – without needing to look down at your hands on the keyboard, it reduces fatigue, reduces risk for repetitive strain injury, increases productivity, and is highly useful for those with dyslexia and other learning disabilities and/or ADHD.
