Touch typing course for kids

Event date:

Event time:

Event location:

Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity

Touch typing is such a useful and lifelong skill – especially if handwriting is a struggle. These sessions are a fun and effective way to learn to touch type.

  • Introduction to touch typing for ages 10-year olds to teens (book younger children here or there is a mixed age group here)
  • Three-day course taught in daily one-and-a-half-hour sessions from Monday 29 to Wednesday 31 July from 11.30 to 1 pm
  • All students to bring own laptops / iPads with keyboard
  • Learners taught position of letters on keyboard using multi-sensory techniques
  • Plenty of opportunity for repetition and over learning in these fun interactive sessions
  • By end of the three days learners will have learnt all letter keys and progressed to simple punctuation and number keys
  • Short homework tasks after each session to consolidate skills
  • Sessions should be backed up by regular practice at home to promote automaticity
  • Upon completion of the course, learners should have gained a good basic knowledge of keyboard and have a sound foundation on which to build speed and accuracy

‘I think that the course is pretty good because now I’m a lot better at typing than I first was. It is also an effective way of learning.’ (AB)
