    LTK as Typing and Spelling Tutor for Kids, Youth and Adults

    Type to Learn

     

    Type to learn? Absolutely! With the LTK MAIL module will teach you how to type fast and how to spell.

    LTK performs a spell check function on all words as they are typed. If the word is spelled correctly and it is in the LTK then a pleasant chimes sound will be heard. If the word is incorrectly spelled, then a “boing” will be heard. Students press the Read button to have LTK play what has been typed.

    The LTK For Schools Network and Enterprise Network versions provide an E-mail function between students and their assigned teacher. With these versions the E-mail buttons appear on the LTK Notes screen. Students can type and/or record a message to send to their teacher.

    Teaching Skills/Activities

    There are well over 5,000 words taught in all the levels of the program.  Using type and spell will teach student about decoding the words, word meaning and word usage. Words from K to Grade-5 are being taught. Activities include:

    • spell the words (spelling games)

    • free-form spelling

    • spelling dictionary (proofing)

    • correct/incorrect spelling

    • spelling test (spelling bee)

    • hard words to spell

    How LTK Differs?

    LTK teaches spelling and typing by using multi-sensory approach- we engage all your student senses which significantly improves the outcome. Our approach is Orton-Gillingham (og) based and is proven by multiple studies to work for students who struggle because of Dyslexia, learning disabilities or other reasons.

    Extensions

    Additional modules are available to further develop typing skills, so useful for study and vocational training. For younger LTK users we offer game-like experience which helps keep them interested in using the program. All versions feature detailed reports with all mistakes quickly and clearly visible.  Teacher or parent can use these to repeat/emphasize or take corrective measures quickly and efficiently. For Schools and Organizations we offer unlimited student version.

    Help in your language

    We offer additional help and instruction in Spanish and other common languages. This is perfect for ESL students and ELL (English-Language Learners) students.
