Touch Typing for Kids & Teens – a skill for life

The Dore Programme is quite unique: it is a personalised physical exercise routine designed for children (of 7 years +), adolescents and adults with specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD. It consists of:

  • a full assessment with our qualified doctor
  • daily computer-generated exercises carried out at home
  • regular progress assessments

The Dore Programme lasts between 12 and 18 months and has been successfully completed by many thousands of people since it was developed over 10 years ago. Now, DORE is the trading name of Dynevor CIC, a social enterprise, which has owned the rights to the DORE Programme since 2009. The Programme is also an intervention of choice for SEN pupils in several UK schools.

    Fairley House was founded in 1982 for children aged 5-14 with specific learning difficulties. We specialise in offering therapy as an integral part of a child’s education not simply as a ‘bolted on extra’. Our whole school approach means that children are taught in small classes and small groups by specialist teachers, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists.

    We emphasise the development of the whole child, helping him or her to gain confidence and self-esteem through an encouraging and nurturing ethos. The children have plenty of opportunities to develop sound academic and social skills and to become independent.
