Lilly Walters' One Hand Typing and Keyboarding Manual: With Personal Motivational Messages From Others Who Have Overcome

 
9780974174624: Lilly Walters' One Hand Typing and Keyboarding Manual: With Personal Motivational Messages From Others Who Have Overcome

With the use of either your right, or left hand, this 66 page manual will teach you to type on a standard keyboard. Within 1-3 weeks of working through the drills in this manual, you can step into any mainstream program to learn typing.

I do not like the idea of asking these kids to use a "special keyboard." When I lost my hand at 10, I did not want one more reason to be ‘different.' I wanted to use the tools, and systems the others kids used. This why I push using a normal keyboard - just like the other kids.

If you know of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® books, you might have heard, or read the story of my learning to type in the ‘60 after an accident which took a great deal of one hand. When the story became so famous in th e'90's, I began to get calls weekly, from parents and typing teachers, wanting my help to find the One Hand Typing Manual. It is almost impossible to find, so I wrote my own!

I filled it with personal messages from some of my friends, people who have done very well with one hand: Jim Abbott the famous baseball player, Sen. Bob Dole, and Bree Walker, the Southern California News anchorwoman. Also, throughout are motivational quotes, and short DID YOU KNOW's, which tell about some famous people who overcame a disability.

Lilly Walters filled this typing and keyboarding manual with personal messages from some of her friends, people who have done very well indeed with one hand: Jim Abbott the famous baseball player, Sen.

Also, throughout are motivational quotes, and short DID YOU KNOW's, which tell about some famous people who overcame a disability.

From the Author:

Dvoark and one-hand keyboards are faster and easier, but not smarter. My philosophy is to help the student use mainstream tools and systems whenever possible. When I lost my hand at 10, I did not want one more reason to be ‘different.' My employers over the years were no doubt happy with that choice.

If you know of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® books, you might have heard, or read the story of my learning to type in the ‘60 after an accident which took a great deal of one hand. When the story became so famous in the '90's, I began to get calls weekly, from parents and typing teachers, wanting my help to find the One Hand Typing Manual. It is almost impossible to find, so I wrote my own! - If you need personal advise, email me Lilly@aboutonehandtyping.com
