KAZ Type is evolving into one of the leading companies providing touch typing solutions for both mainstream students, as well as students with special educational needs. Their reputation has been built on pedigree, their tried, tested and proven Accelerated Learning teach method and their passion to be truly inclusive.
With online learning and using a computer now key elements in education, they believe teaching students the invaluable ‘life skill’ of touch typing is essential. It equips them with a new and powerful medium for learning and communicating and gives them a huge advantage – preparing then for further education, the work place and life.
Their school licences include both their mainstream edition, plus their specialised SEN/dyslexia edition as a free option. This specialised edition was developed with advice and guidance from the Dyslexia Research Trust. It teaches typing skills, whilst minimising visual disturbances by means of a unique ‘preference screen’, tailoring the course to each student for maximum visibility comfort. It is suitable for students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, ADHD, ASD and Tourette’s, amongst others.
Additionally, to engage students and encourage them to learn the skill in a fun way, KAZ hold an annual ‘Worldwide Touch Typing Tournament’ for students who wish to enter. The tournament always creates a lot of excitement and awards prizes.
KAZ’s touch typing software has proven so effective that it was shortlisted for several academic awards: BETT 2019, Teach Primary 2019/20 and Teach Secondary 2019/20. They pride themselves on their testimonials.
