Multi-sensory Type Right
Unlike traditional home-row instruction, the program teaches typing in a sequential, alphabetic approach. This approach, combined with an easy to learn poem as a memory devise, helps students remember each key location without looking at the keyboard. Once the keys are memorized, a special cover shields the keys so that students learn to let their fingers – not their eyes – find the keys.
Our program is multi-sensory and involves teaching each new information using several senses at once (sight, sound, touch or kinesthetic movement). This increases the likelihood that the memory of new information will be improved. Students are taught to look at the monitor, say the letters out loud and feel different key surfaces.
The program involves six one-hour lessons over six weeks. The instruction is usually on a one to one basis or occasionally one on two. Students are expected to practice at home for about ten minutes a day.
