Visual Timers for Students with ADHD & Autism
Our large selection of visual timers come in a variety of styles and sizes, from small desk size timers, to those big enough for the whole class. They feature a variety of functions some light up, count up or down, have auditory cues and more. Time is an abstract concept that is sometimes hard for students with ADHD and autism to comprehend. By adding a visual cue, you can help your students manage their time efficiently and encourage better productivity and attention. Parents use them at home to help with homework and chores. They have even been used to help kids stay seated at the table during meals. Teachers use them to help students prepare for transitions, stay on task, and encourage independence. Some teachers have noted that visual timers help students to focus better during tests by alleviating the anxiety associated with time management.
