ReacTickles are highly motivating activities that help children develop concentration and attention skills, as well as encourage sharing and imaginative play and learning. The ReacTickles environment offers a safe place for autism spectrum and early learners to use technology and experience dynamic interactions where players freely explore abstract shapes and create rhythmic responses with their fingers and bodies without judgment or fear. Students develop mouse, keyboard, whiteboard, switch, and screen skills while being encouraged to communicate, use fine motor skills, and work together. The software also works well within mainstream early years settings, enabling very young children to interact and learn to communicate as individuals and within small groups.
"One teacher commented that students made more progress in one week using this software than they did the entire previous year (with computer activities)... Because the software is so easy to understand... even hesitant staff were more willing to try this software with the students. All students demonstrated improved attention to the computer activities. Feedback from [students diagnosed with ASD or cognitive impairment, most of whom are nonverbal] was AMAZING! Since the students appeared to 'want' more interaction with the specific activities, they appeared to learn the necessary computer skills at a faster pace (e.g. clicking, mouse use, dragging along the touch window)." -Barbara Chwierut, SLP, A.T.
