Northview High School, MO

We sat down with Christy Hagy and Diane Witte at Northview High School to talk about their experiences with Clicker 7 and how they are using it to support students with a myriad of learning needs.

"We record baseline data for our students on areas like visual engagement and motor targeting. The use of Clicker 7 to support students in these areas has shown quantitative improvements of 20%-30% on these scores, which is fantastic."

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."

Aeshia Grine is a special education teacher at Skyline High School in Colorado. She works with students from Grades 9-12, all of whom have significant needs, and has been trialing Clicker with two of her students.

"Josh is very good at repeating words as he hears them, but I wanted to work on his recognition of their written form. I have had a lot of success with the ‘Matching’ wizard in Clicker ..."

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.”

Students at Perkins School for the Blind use Clicker with symbols, photographs, and other images to facilitate sentence formation, and to support vocabulary and language.

“The power of a tool such as Clicker lies in the ease of creating and using activities that are perfectly correlated to standard curriculum but at a functional level appropriate for each learner.”

Maureen Gates reports on how Clicker and EagleEyes technologies can be used for communication, using the eyes instead of a mouse or a switch.

“Clicker software allowed Michael’s teacher, Maureen Gates, to create Clicker grids with words and pictures with which Michael used to communicate. By moving his eyes, Michael would select words in the grid, then, a “dwell time click” would “highlight the words in the grid and print them in the Clicker Writer” communicating what Michael was thinking.”
