Visual Timers – Help Your Child with Time Management

Does your child have a difficult time understanding time? Or do you have a child with special needs? If so,  you know how challenging transitions are. A great way to help your child with transitions is to use a visual timer. Visual timers help children “see” the passage of time. They also help teach kids time management and help them understand that every activity is limited to a set amount of time. Instead of you being your child’s clock, use a visual timer to help them be independent!

There are many different visual times to choose from. My favourite is the Time Timer, which is one of the most popular visual timers available on the market. With an uncluttered interface, silent operation, and optional alerts this timer works great in almost any setting! Time Timers come in 3, 8 and 12 inch sizes. I have the 3-inch timer and it works great!

The Time Timer can be purchased from their website or on Amazon. They range in price from $30 to $50.
