Reviews and success stories

Talbot Specialist School

Talbot Specialist School

Cheryl Gaughan tells us how Clicker is raising enthusiasm for writing and giving a voice to children at Talbot Specialist School.

"Although I use it a lot with children who have SEND, the good thing about Clicker is that you can use it with both children who have SEND and those who don’t. A child doesn’t have to have a disability or a need, because it’s useful and engaging for every child. I think that’s the nice thing about it, is that it’s not seen as something that only SEND children can use but all children in any setting, too."

Recently, June Howard sent us a message to share how Clicker 7 has made a world of difference to a year 9 student she works with – not only in terms of his learning, but also his behaviour in school and at home.

“He has behaviour and learning difficulties but since using Clicker his behaviour has improved immensely and he is now above target in 8 subjects - all the teaching staff are amazed at his improvement!"

Becky has severe quadriplegic cerebral palsy. She has been using Clicker with a Tobii eye tracker since she was 7 years old!

“As Becky has grown, Clicker has grown with her. When she was younger she used it to produce many beautiful pictures. Now, it's her preferred tool for tackling curriculum writing tasks at school and at home.”

Tracey Horne reveals how Clicker 7 is transforming attitudes to writing at Manor Academy, a special school in Sale.

"The students are very proud of what they are able to accomplish with Clicker 7. Many actively disliked English before, because of the reading and writing aspect of the lessons and their inevitable struggle with it. However, they are now able to achieve something independently. Every student can now participate, even those with the biggest learning challenges..."

Highfield 1

Highfield School

Highfield School is a Foundation Special School designated for learners in the 11-19 year old age group. Elaine Blake tells us about the Clicker Expert Trainers Group her students have set up.

"The students have gained an enormous amount from this project. Not only has it helped them to develop various functional skills themselves, but it’s been really motivating for them to teach their teachers something! Their confidence has really increased too..."

Kelvin Hall 1

Kelvin Hall School

Jon Hickman tells us how he has been using Clicker and the Clicker Apps to help EAL students and learners with special needs access the science curriculum.

"The outcomes have been very positive – all of the children have demonstrated significantly improved literacy skills, and overall attainment has improved by a least a couple of sub-levels per child. Their work is much easier to read and they are able to get their ideas down much more quickly, and achieve a lot more within the time frame of a lesson. What’s really important is that with the help of Clicker, they are encouraged to use that key subject-specific vocabulary in context and produced more detailed explanations."
