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."

Julie Osherow is an AT Specialist with a focus on literacy support. She is using Clicker to support students with a wide range of special educational needs.

"If you don’t already have it, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend adding Clicker 7 to your AT toolbox – it is such a comprehensive tool for literacy, with features and customizations to suit all students, regardless of cognitive level or physical ability."

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."

Oaktree School

Ricardo Morais is a classroom teacher at Oaktree Special School. He shares with us how they have been using Clicker 7, and the difference it has made to the students' writing confidence.

"When I consider the positive impact that Clicker is having, there’s one particular student who comes to mind in my class. Tom* was a very reluctant writer when he joined our school... But with Clicker, being able to customize the program so much gave Tom the confidence to give writing more of a try. It’s fantastic that Tom has gone from writing very simplistically to wanting to write lots more."

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 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..."

Dana Perez

Dana Perez describes her excitement about the countless ways to creatively use Clicker to support the language skills of children with hearing loss.

“I have seen some amazing things happen in our classrooms where I have introduced Clicker. We have students as young as 3 and 4 year olds that are using Clicker's forced order grids to write sentences and then read them back. On the other end of the spectrum, I have older students creating story books, history projects, and presentations of all kinds. There's nothing these kids can't do.”
