Debbie Vita writes about an autistic high school student using Clicker to express her stories and develop her artistic skills.

“When introduced to the software program Clicker, Quiana taught herself how to use the program. She is presently using this resource to write, illustrate, and even narrate books! Technology skills and Clicker have provided a fantastic tool to help this young lady create additional characters with on-going storylines and/or experiences.”

Forehill Primary School

Jacqui Rodger tells us how Clicker 7 is making an impact on writing ability and enthusiasm at Forehill Primary School.

"The Clicker Board tool has been particularly great. I can teach the children to plan using the mind mapping tool, then use the spell checker, before making the Clicker Board into a Word Bank for their writing; they’re supporting themselves!"

Tracey Horne reveals how Clicker 7 is transforming attitudes to writing in this secondary special education school in Sale, England.

"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..."

A mother of a nine-year old boy with moderate autism and learning differences explains how she creates Clicker resources for her son to support his learning across the curriculum.

“I had researched Clicker and miraculously, the assistive technology assessor recommended it for my son. That was one of our lucky breaks!

I did the tutorial and got to know Clicker on an "intimate" level. My son has an intensive Applied Behavior Analysis program (ABA) and I would make grids for the therapists to work on synonym drills, antonym drills, and double meanings.”

Indian Prairie School District finds that special education students are actively participating in the curriculum, and are able to express their own thoughts and ideas with the support features in Clicker.

“We can adapt Clicker to meet the needs of many different learners; children who are benefitting now include children with autism, cognitive difficulties, learning disabilities, children who struggle with new vocabulary, and children with physical disabilities who have trouble accessing a computer keyboard. The main reasons it can be used for such a wide variety of learners include the ability to use audio cuing, recording of responses, pictures, videos, and different sentence structures. What’s great about Clicker is that we can set up these support features ourselves and combine them in many different ways to meet the needs of all our users.”
