School Counselor Skills Conference
Washington County School District

April, 2022

School Counselors deal with many difficult situations every day. We had the opportunity to teach the “Help in the Moment” strategies at this conference. These strategies are being used with students of all ages, colleagues as well as the School Counselors themselves, in moments of heightened stress anxiety. These are resources that can be put into practice immediately. We all do better when our nervous system is calm and regulated.

Southern Utah University
Health & Wellness Center

March, 2022

Southern Utah University’s (SUU) Health & Wellness Center has incorporated Bi-Tapp as a resource for students to check out, similar to checking out a library book. Students are using the tappers to help reduce their stress and anxiety, including test anxiety.

Jessie Mineer, Coordinator of the Health & Wellness Center stated, “The Bi-Tapps have been a huge hit!”

Utah Student Services Directors/Spring Conference

March, 2022

We are grateful to the Utah Student Services Directors Association. This amazing group of people work tirelessly throughout
the year and then meet together every spring to collaborate and learn about resources that they can take back to their School Districts.

We were invited to share how Bi-Tapp is being used in School Districts throughout Utah and across the country to reduce anxiety
and stress as well as improve focus.

The tappers are a resource for adults as well as students. There has never been a time when teacher burnout has been higher.

There is “Help in the Moment” of heightened stress and anxiety and it starts with Bi-Tapp. Simple solution, profound results.

Bi-Tapp App and chromebooks

March, 2022

Bi-Tapp App can be downloaded on chromebooks

Both Washington County School District and Iron County School District in Utah have approved the Bi-Tapp App for students to use on their chromebooks.

Why is this big news?

When you have several students in a classroom wanting to use tappers at the same time to take a test, for example, it is faster to have the students pair their tappers to the Bi-Tapp App on their chromebook than to have the teacher pair each set of tappers for the students.

Southern Utah is leading the way in helping reduce anxiety and stress in the school setting.

In honor of

We want to express our grief at the passing of our dear friend, Jolie. She was creative, intelligent, genuine and kind. She loved to uplift and support others. She had a wonderful laugh and a beautiful smile. Jolie wanted to share how the tappers were helping her regulate her emotions after she was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

The Children’s Justice Center, whose motto is “A place where small voices are heard”, is designed to help children and families feel safe as they deal with the initial crisis and chaos that is often experienced after abuse has been disclosed. Bi-Tapp is one of the resources offered to those who are at the CJC prior to being interviewed. Having access to a resource that is simple to use and effective at helping someone calm down is of top priority.
