Kaz Typing Tutor
KAZ’s inclusive touch typing program caters for all, mainstream and neurodiverse students. The course opens with a unique ‘Preference Screen’ which minimises visual disturbances, tailoring the course for maximum visibility comfort.
Unlike other typing tutors based on repetitive exercises and distracting games, KAZ teaches typing skills using specific combinations and progressions of just 11 words in 5 easily memorised, scientifically structured and trademarked phrases. Its multi-sensory approach engages the major senses of sight, sound and touch simultaneously, radically enhancing memory retention and recall – which is why it is so effective.
The unique method trains the fingers on both hands to work symmetrically and simultaneously, a direct result of both hemispheres of the brain working at the same time (brain balance). No other typing tutor works in this way.
The method also builds muscle memory. With the repetition of real word vocabulary – reading, spelling and vocabulary are engrained to memory and spellings become a series of finger movements and patterns on a keyboard, dramatically reducing the likelihood of transposing and misspelling words.
