Crick Software launches new writing support tool for secondary schools

Crick Software’s child-friendly literacy tool, Clicker, is being used in thousands of primary schools around the world to raise reading and writing standards. Now, Crick has launched an exciting new program for struggling writers in secondary school – DocsPlus.

DocsPlus is an innovative talking word processor that gives students with high incidence special needs the support they need to independently tackle curriculum writing tasks. Teachers can:

– Help students organise their ideas and plan writing tasks with the built-in mind mapping tool and audio note creator.
– Offer subject-specific writing frames and word banks to support their learners as they tackle new writing genres and try to incorporate more relevant vocabulary into their work.
– Encourage students to actively review their own work with the speech feedback tool.
– Save time and money that would otherwise be spent on scribes and readers by using DocsPlus to support students who require additional access arrangements in exams.

“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 DocsPlus to help students overcome these barriers and make curriculum tasks much more accessible for them. It offers so much support throughout the writing process; we think that teachers will be very excited by the potential this fantastic new product has to accelerate student progress.”
