Englishtype Limited The Educational Typing Tutors

What does it do?
Touch typing software for primary (Englishtype Junior) and secondary (Englishtype Senior) age pupils. A multi-sensory, coloured coded typing program designed to engage the muscle memory and teach “proper” typing by touch so that the skill is unconscious, reduces visual stress and frees the conscious brain to focus solely on what is being written.

Who is it for?
Can be used in school or at home (or ideally both). It is for Mainstream and SEN individuals including: Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia, ASD, VI (partial sight required) who have been given a statement recommending touch typing or any child who is struggling with handwriting. Once typing is established as the “normal method of working”, children can use laptops in school and in exams. Touch typing is usually the definition for this.

How do I access it?
Purchased from Englishtype Limited Demo available from Fiona Whitaker, Lead Specialist Teacher, High Incidence Team 0-25 SEND Inclusive Education Service
