Crick Software launches new symbol-supported literacy app for iPad and Chromebook users

Crick Software’s child-friendly literacy app, Clicker Connect, is being used in many primary schools around the world to raise reading and writing standards. Now, Crick has released a special symbol-supported version of the app for children with additional learning and communication needs.

Clicker Connect SymbolStix enables learners with special literacy needs to take their first steps to independent writing:

  • Provide pupils with clusters of words, phrases and pictures to help them create their own sentences.
  • Enable learners to develop their understanding of the link between the symbols they see and the words they hear with the speech feedback tool.
  • Choose from an extensive range of additional support options to suit pupils of all abilities, including colour-coded words and enlarged cells for extra clarity.
  • Use the unique SuperKeys keyboard to make access easier for those with physical challenges.

“We believe that for many children, the struggle to achieve the same results as their peers stems directly from barriers to literacy,” says Crick Software CEO, John Crick. “We’ve created Clicker Connect SymbolStix to help pupils overcome these barriers and make curriculum tasks much more accessible for them. A lot of teachers have been asking us for an app that combines the power of Clicker with symbols, so we anticipate a lot of interest in this exciting new addition to the Clicker Apps family.”
