TomTag is an award-winning visual support system inspired by Tomas, a young boy with autism.
With a unique and innovative design, this communication tool helps children and young people develop coping strategies to manage their day, using structure, organisation and predictability – at home, at school and when out and about.
TomTag has a positive effect on behaviour by reducing anxieties and frustrations and making it easier for your child to understand, follow and remember what they need to do. It’s a visual support that children love to use.
Everything’s ready to go with TomTag’s colourful, sturdy tags, click-in buttons and symbol stickers. Forget the faffy printing, laminating and Velcro! All you need to do is personalise it – just pick, stick, click and off you go.
Every schedule, timetable or checklist you need to make starts with just one or more colourful tags and a pack of blank buttons. All the TomTag symbols have been grouped together into categories relating to a specific topic, skill or area of life.
- Pick the symbols that are going to help your child with the difficulties they have or areas you want to work on
- Stick each symbol to a blank button
- Click these into the tag in the order that they should be followed
When you need to change your list or make something new, just pick-stick-click again … and again … and again!
If you’re not sure what to choose but you know where you need most support or what issues you’re particularly struggling with right now, we’ll help you to decide what will work best for you.
