Visual timers transform stressful transition periods, reduce resistance to routines, and help manage a class or therapy session. Time Timer displays the passage of time with a disappearing red disk providing stress-free time management to make every moment count. This is a powerful tool for visual thinkers of all ages and abilities.
Time Timer helps students of all ages and abilities see and understand the passage of time. There is a world of difference between looking at a clock and being able to say that it is 3 o’clock and understanding “how long” 5 minutes is. For those who learn differently, this type of abstract thinking is even more difficult and often creates a high level of anxiety. A visual timer provides the opportunity to focus, especially in challenging and chaotic learning environments. No ticking, no distractions, no set up required. Optional audible signal can be used to indicate when time is up. 60-minute timers.
