We have found Clicker by Crick Software to be advantageous for teaching a wide range of different computer skills. You can download many free ready made activities from the Cricksoft Learning Grids website but Clicker is also fully customisable so you can create your own activities and also add in your own child’s reinforcers, such as music or clips of video. We have used Clicker for some of the following skills but it can also be used for lots more:
1. Clicker can be used to teach skills that are needed for touchscreen computers such as look and locate an item on the screen to activate an activity, such as simple cause and effect actions.
2. Clicker is great tool to use when teaching mouse skills.
4. Word to picture and picture to word matching
7. Receptive identification
8. Receptive by feature, function and class
10. Story writing
Unfortunately Clicker 6 is not a cheap product, however it is a multi-functional, flexible program that you can use over the long term.
