For many dyslexic learners, writing can be a very slow and difficult process but, learning to type on a computer can mean quicker working and improved accuracy.

How does it work?  Touch typing helps because a muscle memory is built up in the fingers, meaning that spelling becomes a pattern of finger movements, not a string of letters to learn and remember.  It will take time to build up this muscle memory or automaticity, but there are lots of free websites that offer fun ways to learn to touch type.
