Understanding instructions

For many children and young people, a common trigger for anxiety, especially at school can be making sense of rules and understanding what they are supposed to be doing.

 TomTag visual schedules and FIRST-NEXT-THEN prompts use picture cues to reinforce verbal instruction and help children and young people understand what is being said or asked of them.

TomTag visual schedules and prompts are ideal tools, for use at home and at school as they provide a clear, and consistent reminder of verbal instructions which can often be misunderstood or forgotten.

Everyone needs to be in control of something. Use a TomTag FIRST-NEXT-THEN prompt to offer a choice even if it is as simple as which activity comes first.
