Mountain Movers

Erika Lye is the founder of Mountain Movers, an inclusive education charity that supports children with complex needs. We recently spoke with her about the positive writing outcomes they are seeing since they started using Clicker 8.

“We focus on children with additional needs, but we always make sure we’re including everybody who wants to participate. For children who may otherwise feel disengaged by literacy tasks, Clicker is a real confidence booster because it gives them a medium to express themselves."

SENDcast – Low Cost, No Cost Technology Ideas

Carol Allen, Education Advisor for ICT and Inclusion, and John Galloway, Advisory Teacher for ICT/ SEN and Inclusion, recently joined the SENDcast podcast on the ‘Low Cost, No Cost Technology Ideas’ episode.

“I would say Clicker is the gold standard piece of software to support reading and writing for any age; primary, secondary, higher education.”

Andrew Simpson reviews Clicker 8 for Access: technology north, an AT consultancy service that works with children who are disabled to provide technology solutions that support and enable communication, entertainment, learning and independence.

 "For those who are unfamiliar with Clicker, it is a child-friendly word processor that’s jam-packed with assistive features to facilitate extended writing and help to develop literacy skills, available on Windows, Mac and iOS."

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