Individualized Keyboarding utilizes a multi-sensory approach to teach typing skills. But this not only teaches typing skills, it also reinforces the reading patterns that are necessary for typing proficiency. You may try our free experiment that demonstrates our point that good readers have built-in automatic responses to spelling patterns. Poor readers don't yet have the patterns locked into their God-given computer brains, so they must type letter-by-letter which slows them down and increases the likelihood of mistakes. AVKO's method of teaching is by patterns. In the back of this book is the teacher/parent's book - Improving Reading and Spelling Skills via Keyboarding.

  • "Besides teaching typing and keyboard skills, it teaches reading and spelling skills through the context of patterns rather than isolated key positions. A fantastic concept that works."   -R.J. Rayl, Flint, MI
  • Even the most severely dyslexic / dysgraphic student can begin the learning-to-read and spell process while he thinks he is just learning the keyboard so that he can make better use of a computer.
  • Contains Parent/Teacher Component Improving Reading and Spelling Skills via Keyboarding
    which also has: a controlled experiment that you can do in your classroom to prove that poor readers must learn spelling patterns in order to become good typists as well as the complete scope and sequence of this typing program:

If the dyslexic (non-reader or poor reader) hears the word (Audio) and sees the word (Visual) as he types the word (Kinesthetic) and says (or subvocalizes) the word (Oral) the dyslexic will be using a multi-sensory approach to learning spelling patterns and phonically regular words as he learns the keyboard.   This is what the word AVKO stands for:  Audio, Visual, Kinesthetic, Oral.
