Touch-type, Read and Spell is a computer-aided learning course for students with spelling, reading or writing difficulties.

The purpose of the course is to help develop the literacy skills of reading, writing or spelling and at the same time as increasing confidence, self-esteem, and motivation.

Learning is promoted by:

  • A multi-sensory approach-seeing, hearing, speaking, touching.
  • A planned programme that is finely graded, structured and computerised.
  • Immediate self-correction of errors and feedback of results.
  • Success from the very first module builds greater motivation and self-esteem.
  • Focus and support for a positive learning experience.

A series of courses, each of 30 modules and based on Alpha to Omega, is clearly presented to the student on the computer screen as words and sentences.

Each course has at least 6 dictation modules based on preceding exercises. These are typed by the student and monitored by the computer. This is supported by the teacher, parent or computer, speaking the words where necessary, as they are displayed on the screen. Students who reached advanced levels may choose to work on subject-specific vocabulary for mathematics, physics and chemistry.

Courses are run on Mondays from 4.00 to 5.00 pm.
