12hz click

A number of our students click very fast and without apparent reason or 
cause.
To help these students learn mouse skills, 3 approaches spring to mind:

1	use a specialist mouse that prevents rapid clicking.
2	disable left and right click and develop fine motor skills: 
http://www.pmld.org/leaves/index.html,
3	design an activity that responds at a rapid speed: 
http://www.pmld.org/click/index.html       IE-PC only for now.
Each of these has much to recommend it.

Our solution 3 is not responsive enough, you may need to set your mouse 
double click to very fast, (which may be a bug, as double click doesn't 
seem popular on the web?), and for best results move the cursor off the 
screen. It can work with good kit at about 4hz, but we have rubbish old 
kit.
Does anyone know of a very fast online clicking activity? or would 
anyone care to suggest a method, ie flash, java, as faster than 
html/javascript.
an additional bottleneck, would be sound, any ideas to reduce the 
response time, please?

thanks

Jonathan

the accessibility angle is admittedly not intellectual, rather perhaps 
limbic?
