Orkid Ideas

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.

At the South Yorkshire Autism Fayre, Orkid Ideas will speak about their product, how it’s used and the multitudes of benefits that it offers.
