Students with language challenges can use activities to practice grammatical patterns, build visual cues for vocabulary words, and develop artwork to support their writing. Wixie's tools provide a range of ways for students to use words in context, express their ideas, build vocabulary, follow directions, and practice using words and their proper meaning.
It can helpful for students to express their emotions in a non-threatening and non-violent way. Students can release creative energy by scribbling with Wixie's paint tools and use color to show feeling, helping them calm down and express themselves in a positive way.
Wixie includes text-to-speech options that make it easy for students to listen to text others have provide for them or that they have written themselves. They can practice fluency with the audio and video recording tools, listen or watch their efforts, and easily try again if they want to.
Many students need additional support with communication and social skills. The visual nature of Wixie makes it easy for both teachers and students to highlight important words and phrases and support text with pictures. Teachers and students can use Wixie's tools to develop social stories that help them see situations from the perspective of other people and practice working with social cues.

They can design these to require only click-and-drag with options on the screen, add text and audio instructions, and lock objects on the screen to make student work less distracting and confusing.Wixie can also run in Spanish and French.
