Detailed Description

  • SEN teachers adviced us that 10% of their students, the majority suffering from dyslexia, were experiencing visual disturbances caused by white glare from background screens. These disturbances included headaches, blurring, letters rotating, flipping, crowding and running into each other. In order to help address these problems, we talked to dyslexia experts, most notably Dr. Sue Fowler and her team at the Dyslexia Research Trust, Reading Clinic and Oxford University.
  • Over the last fifteen years the Trust have carried out extensive research, trials and visual assessments on over 10,000 children. Results found that the application of a specific frequency of blue filter to help stabilise letter movement and of yellow, to minimise blurring, were extremely successful in the majority of children suffering with visual disturbances and had either improved or completely eliminated their problems – resulting in a rapid improvement in reading skills.
  • They advised us to incorporate their research findings into the KAZ program. So, with further development we produced our SEN/Dyslexia edition, suitable for neurodivergent individuals with: Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, ASD, Tourettes, amongst others.

Unique ‘Preference Screen’ - especially effective with SEN/Dyslexic users 

Incorporating a multi-sensory approach throughout, KAZ’s SEN/Dyslexia edition teaches typing skills whilst minimising visual disturbances, by means of a unique 'preference screen'.

Preferences include:

  • Choice of coloured background/filter screens – for reducing white screen glare
  •  Choice of two specific DRT research based background/filter colours - to stabilise letter movement and reduce blurring
  • Choice of dyslexic friendly typefaces (including 2 licensed dyslexic fonts) – for ease of reading
  • Choice of font colour – for contrast from background screen colour
  • Choice of font size – for optimum visibility comfort and to minimise fusing and crowding of letters
  • Choice of Keyboard – for optimum visibility comfort

Once the user has selected their preferences and can read the sample text comfortably, these options are then 'Saved' and applied throughout the course, tailor making it and ensuring the learning experience is comfortable and enjoyable.

 Visually impaired users will benefit from KAZ’s audio descriptive version, which includes ‘speaking keys’ and spoken instruction.Deaf and hearing impaired users will benefit from KAZ’s text only version, with written and visual instruction.

The course was designed to be used independently and without supervision.

  • The Method

    Unlike other typing tutors based on repetitive exercises and distracting games, KAZ teaches typing skills using specific combinations and progressions of just 11 words in 5 easily memorised, scientifically structured and trademarked phrases. Its multi-sensory approach engages the major senses of sight, sound and touch simultaneously, radically enhancing memory retention and recall - which is why it is so effective.
  • Brain Balance

    The unique method trains the fingers on both hands to work symmetrically and simultaneously, a direct result of both hemispheres of the brain working at the same time (brain balance). No other typing tutor works in this way.
  • Muscle Memory

    The method also builds muscle memory. With the repetition of real word vocabulary - reading, spelling and vocabulary are engrained to memory and spellings become a series of finger movements and patterns on a keyboard, dramatically reducing the likelihood of transposing and misspelling words.

This is why so many special needs co-ordinators (SENCOs) and teachers recommend KAZ.
