How we created Tolkido?

As the co-founder of Tolkido, when I was a Computer Engineering student, my cousin Umut was diagnosed with autism. Umut, once a talkative and cheerful child, no longer speaks and has become a quite and reserved child. This affected me a lot and I went on a quest to return Umut back to his old days. My uncle spent a lot of effort working with Umut at home using visual training cards to teach him new words. By closely witnessing this training process, I saw inefficiencies in education. This training method was useful for Umut, but I could make it better. After brainstorming with my uncle for a while, we came up with the idea of Tolkido. After experimenting with Umut, we observed how useful it was to him. After that, we started our professional journey so that every children with autism could benefit from this educational material.
