Learn to Touch-Type
Learners with dyslexia and dyspraxia really benefit from learning to touch-type.
If you have access to a computer, use your time at home to learn. There are lots of free online courses; I like Typing Club; it has adults and children' courses. Click on the logo to go to the site.
Little and often every day is the best way to learn.
