 Tom Tags – Mini Kits

Reduce anxieties and frustrations and make it easier for your child to understand, follow and remember what they need to do with the TomTag visual support system.

Inspired by a mum and her autistic son Tom, TomTag has been created to help parents and children communicate.

With a unique and innovative design, this award-winning 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.

It’s a visual support that children love to use.

Our customers say

“Finally I’ve got a ‘emotion-traffic light’. This is great in many ways I can show how I feel if I’m happy or OK or Sad and up to a really deep red angry. But I could use it as a pain scale or a scale of how much energy I have or about my inner tension, how strong a certain emotion is and as well as how bad a flashback is.”

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