Programs 

Practice typing using Dance Mat Typing, Type Rocket or Keyboard Zoo for about 10 minutes a day.  Please remember to always return each finger back to the home key, use the correct fingers for each key (closest), say each letter in your head as you type each letter, keep your eyes on the monitor, and keep your fingers curved. We are building muscle memory! This means our fingers will eventually learn where the keys are on their own! One time a week isn't enough. Please practice daily! You don't need a keyboard. You can use a tabletop and memory to build strength in your fingers.

 

Great resource!
