How Touch Typing Helps Dyslexic Students
Touch typing is a skill that can be a game-changer for dyslexic and dysgraphic students. Often, these students find it easier to type than to write by hand, and once they become proficient typists, writing papers becomes just a bit easier. Many state tests are administered by computer, and most middle and high school teachers expect typed work from their students.
But touch typing is not always taught in schools, and dyslexic students often need extra practice to master the skill.
