Ladislas de Toldi has a long history with exceptional children – from families and friends to volunteering in several associations, he has gained a lot of exposure and are very familiar with the cause. In 2011, while at university, he discovered that his design teacher’s son was diagnosed with autism. Together with his classmate Marine Couteau, they naturally started working with their teacher to develop a toy that would both help his son learn and communicate. They decided to develop a toy to ensure the toy they were building was actually beneficial and helpful, they met with parents and caregivers to understand how technology could tie together real world interactions. Exploring these interactions inspired the company’s simple motto: “Help exceptional children live exceptional lives.” From there, Leka was born.
