The Definition of Literacy is Changing

SEN Magazine’s article on literacy makes rather bleak reading: 25% of all children leave Primary school with below age-expected skill levels. And for SEN pupils, this is a staggering 62%. Teaching typing by touch is a simple option and will boost literacy levels – improving spelling and reading and changing written work completely. Typing by touch uses the powerful unconscious physical skill centre or muscle memory. Don’t let your child be one of these statistics, it’s easy to help, Englishtype teaches typing and boosts literacy.

“The definition of literacy is changing… Broadly speaking, literacy is the ability to read, write, speak and listen in a way that lets us communicate effectively and make sense of the world. But children and young people today are growing up in a digital age, so they need to develop additional literacy skills to navigate, survive and thrive in today’s fast-paced environment.”
