Support for Students with Speech or Language Impairments

Clicker is a great favorite among speech and language professionals as well as special education teachers. Clicker activities are perfect for children struggling to acquire language or to express themselves.

Develop listening skills

A range of activities can be created within Clicker to help students develop their listening skills. You can tie the activities in to any curriculum area by incorporating relevant pictures, words, and sounds. Listening activities are also a great way for students to demonstrate their understanding of key vocabulary and concepts. Learn more>

Practice speaking skills

Clicker’s sound recorder opens up a range of activities to help children practice speaking in a variety of contexts. Students can listen back to what they have recorded, reflect on what they have said, and re-record as many times as they like until they are satisfied. Learn more>

Focus on language structure

Use sentence building grids to teach and reinforce simple sentence structure. For learners needing additional support, use 'forced order' grids where they have to select words in the correct order from left to right. Learn more>

Activities to teach and practice
specific language concepts

By using pictures and presenting a set of alternative choices, students learn concepts, as for example in this activity where they choose the correct preposition to complete the sentence.

Enable communication

Students with little or no speech who need a communication aid, use customized Clicker grids to communicate. Symbol sets are a great way to provide symbol support. Customize communication grid sets for individual students, linking together relevant grids to fit their needs.
