Schools’ Autism Awareness Week

Did you know this week is Schools’ Autism Awareness Week?

Orkid Ideas are supporting this campaign, promoted by the National Autistic Society, by offering schools the chance to try a TomTag visual timetable kit completely free.

Our unique visual support tools can be easily personalised for each child and are portable, robust and very convenient to use.

school timetable kit smallerA TomTag I know what to expect at school kit contains a set of colourful tags, click-in buttons and a large selection of symbols that can be combined in many different ways to create personalised visual supports to help pupils with autism in the classroom.

Here’s some examples of how the set can be used:

  • list the day’s lesson plan to explain the structure of the school day
  • use FIRST and THEN markers with two relevant images to support transitions between activities
  • show symbols to describe the steps of a specific task to be completed
  • communicate expected rules of behaviour using a symbol list that the child can self refer to
