Touch Typing

It is becoming more evident that Assistive Technology is of great benefit to dyslexic people and therefore the ability to type at an early age is extremely useful.  We do acknowledge that all pupils need to use handwriting but typing enables a pupil to produce more work which is  much better presented.

Information you might find useful:

We hold a Touch Typing course at Woodhouse Grove School on Saturday mornings in term time.  A charge of £5.00 per session (paid termly in advance) is charged to help toward room hire and associated costs. 

Touch Typing Courses which can be used at home or in school are

All of the above are very good for Dyslexic pupils, of course good for anyone wanting to learn to type also.
