Do you want to help your child communicate and understand their feelings, pains and emotions and learn how to develop and use appropriate coping strategies?
Help them to say “I CAN DO IT!” with this easy to use TomTag visual support kit.
I can show you how I’m feeling today by choosing a symbol from the list on my tag. This is great when I can’t speak to you with my own words.
I can use the symbols showing different aches and pains to help me explain what part of my body hurts too.
When I can’t focus on what I’m doing or I need some help, my behaviour is likely to change. You can find out why this might have happened by asking me questions using the tag as a guide.
If I’m in a new place or trying out a different activity, I might find it overwhelming at first. Often my senses get overloaded and being able to show you that I’m finding it too loud, too hot or too crowded will help you to help me calm down and find a way to cope.
When I get anxious, my senses get overloaded or something makes me sad or angry, I need to know what I can do to help myself feel better. My tags can remind me to go out and play, get some exercise, find a quiet room or count to 10.
Typical users include:
- Any child aged 3 upwards
- Non-verbal children
- Children and young people with communication or developmental difficulties
- Anyone who has difficulty expressing and understanding their feelings and emotions
This set contains:
I can do it – share how I feel tags contain 6 colour-graded facial expression symbols to help with identifying and communicating feelings and make a great addition to the standard kit or can be purchased separately. For more details click the product name or the product image.
Simply pick – stick – click and you’re ready in minutes to start helping your child manage and understand their feelings and emotions with TomTag.
PICK out the symbols you want to use from the sticker pack included in the set. This pack has 2 copies each of over 70 different Widgit symbols – view all the symbols in the gallery below.
All TomTag stickers are water-resistant so you never need to worry about any splashes or spills. Every pack comes with a small number of blank stickers for you to add your own personalisation if needed.
STICK each sticker onto a blank button. Involving the child with this process (most of them love stickers after all!) will help to engage them in using TomTag.
If relevant, write a description on one of the rectangular labels provided, decide which coloured tag you want to use and place the label in the slot at the bottom of the tag.
CLICK each button into an empty space of the chosen tag. You’ll find 6 tags in this set so you can work on several issues at once or use them with multiple children.
TomTag’s unique click-in buttons stay securely in place when in use but can easily be removed, repositioned and reused to modify the lists when needed.
READY to use right away. With TomTag, there’s no printing, laminating or Velcro which saves you time AND money. It’s simply less fuss and more fun!
Use each tag on it’s own or join any number of tags together with the attachment loop included in the set – you can buy more from our Pick & Mix options if you need them.
