Wow. I can't stop reading this blog. It makes me wonder if we are severely limiting our students by not trying typing with them (since the evidence-based zealots refuse to think out side the box!).
Where would the harm be in trying? In getting trained in Soma's method? If it can work for one child, where is the harm? This mom is not touching her child while she types, so we can be sure the words are the child's. I have met people who type independently to communicate; so what if they started with someone holding their arms back and providing support, eliminating frantic, impulsive and random typing? Isn't communication something we have to learn?
