How does it work?
Designed to encourage success from the start, the program is highly structured, yet has a flexible approach. Colours, fonts and designs can be customized, the course lessons are modular in design and each module is short and includes regular, positive feedback and there are multiple levels of difficulty.
Students in our program access the tools and lessons through a web-based link on their own device. A qualified facilitator guides the group through the modules while providing positive feedback, ensuring proper posture and finger positioning on the keyboard and helping to regulate breaks and stretches during the lessons. Students can access the course lesson software link remotely, so they can access lessons at home to reinforce learning.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this program is currently running online. Due to the limited visibility of student’s finger placement on keyboard, parents must remain accessible while the program is in session to assist the Facilitator and reinforce these techniques at home.
