Reviews and success stories
Kristin Smith is an Occupational Therapist in Illinois who was initially drawn to Clicker Communicator for its clear layout and Core Vocabulary Sets. But, it is the ease of editing that keeps Kristin recommending this app over and over again.
"We tend to make assumptions with students who are nonverbal. We assume what they are capable of, but we really need to let them try different apps and programs to see what they really can do.

Clicker Communicator is helping my students blossom!”

impact on his confidence."

"Adding vocabulary and new page sets is where Clicker Communicator really shines. The existing learning grids serve as templates for parents and teachers to create their own content. Virtually everything is customizable from number of rows and columns to background color. The to die for feature is the ability to add multiple items simply by separating them with a comma. If you can type 75 words a minute then you can create pages of animals in literally a minute. Pictures automatically populate too. ONE MINUTE...."
