Kaz Type is a well presented and proven method for developing touch typing skills. I would highly recommend this to parents who are wanting their children to develop typing skills.

Michael found KAZ’s Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia Touch Typing Tutor:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    My 11 year old daughter learned how to touch type using Kaz Type in only a few weeks. The software was engaging and we found she looked forward to the daily sessions. Being a self taught typist myself, I was amazed at how quickly my daughter progressed to fluently touch typing her homework.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    In school, it is expected that the majority of work will be completed and submitted electronically. Being able to touch type gives students a huge advantage over their peers and allows them to produce work faster and more accurately. Having touch typing skills will serve our children well not only in education, but as they move into employment this will be a vital and sought after skill by employers.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    I found that now my daughter can touch type, she is able to complete her written assignments more quickly and accurately than before.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload

    There's such an advantage to be able to type as quickly as you can think.

    Wellbeing improves because of the increase in confidence

It is one of the few touch typing platforms which cater for a neuro-diverse audience and that is very important to us. They have a lovely balance of video, audio and kinaesthetic input.

I absolutely love Kaz-Type. As a proficient typist myself, in an age when working from home and home learning has been forced upon every family on a global scale, digital literacy is as critical as reading, writing and being fluent in functional arithmetic. Having keyboard skills is central or core to everyone's digital futures.
