How does TomTag work?

TomTag uses symbols to show a series of separate tasks or steps involved in a task that are part of a routine, a sequence of events in a timeline or they can be used as a list to teach a new skill by breaking down a single activity into smaller steps.

Many children with autism and other additional needs have strong visual skills. They are more likely to remember and understand what they have seen rather than what they hear. Using a visual support like TomTag to present information visually and in a step-by-step manner allows visual thinkers and learners to take in information at their own pace. Visuals can also act as a reminder when children forget what’s been said or become distracted, TomTag helps to bring their attention back to the task or current situation.

Our customers say

“A great idea! The main benefit is the time-saving aspect. Everything is ready, and no faffy laminating and Velcro! Really impressed.”

“I can wear the tag on my lanyard, which is easily accessible in class and outside, whilst enabling my children with autism to comprehend what they need to do.”

“TomTag saves busy education staff time while also providing a practical yet likely desirable tool towards independence for children.” Alison Wilcox, Head of Education, NASEN

WARNING: Please note – TomTag is not a toy. Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts.
