Searsol was recommended to me by my sons occupational therapist as he has dyspraxia. We haven’t looked back since the first day he started. After nearly 2 years of attending he has become very proficient at typing heading towards his Silver Award. Thank you Searsol.

Searsol typing course has helped my son achieve a competence in typing and improve my confidence. Typewiz typing tutor has given him a transferable skill, improved confidence and has boosted my self-esteem. I am so delighted that I have completed the Typewiz typing course.
As a parent I am very happy with the progress my son has made by using the Searsol typing course. The course gave him targets to reach and improved his concentration in doing so. He finished the programme in a very short period of time due to the fun and interactive games on the course. My son is very proud to have finished the programme, he knows this typing skill will a great asset to him for the rest of his life.
Searsol’s touch typing course was ideal for my son’s needs. I was very impressed with the teaching.” Father of 11 year old with moderate/severe dyspraxia

Of all the ways in which we have tried to help David learning to typing with Searsol, it has been by far the most beneficial. For the first time David can express himself in his own words using a laptop at school.

Does my child need to practice at home when doing your course?
When your child starts the course they should initially do no home practice.
We like to supervise the students in our classroom environment and ensure that they are doing the typing correctly.
By doing it at home, students can pick up bad habits and cross-learning can take place.
As a student becomes more confident with touch typing and is doing the typing correctly in the class, then the student can do home practice.
