The Key To Empowerment.
Recommended by Autism and ADHD experts, the Time Timer displays the passage of time with a disappearing colored disk. This is a powerful tool for visual thinkers and differently wired brains.
“I think the best part for me when utilizing (the Time Timer) with kids with all different special needs is the visual component…it is hard for younger kids to understand something abstract like time, so having a dial slowly fade out is helpful to understand time.”
– Jen O’Brien, Occupational Therapist
Time Timer is a proven tool to increase self-regulation.
A recent study conducted by the Department of Exceptional Student Education at Florida Atlantic University found that children ages 2-4 years old showed a significant increase in self-regulation skills when the Time Timer® was used to facilitate their activity.
Parents, therapists, specialists and other professionals have used Time Timer with individuals of all ages and ability.

What People Are Saying:
“Our daughter Cathie received the Time Timer today and it is a great success. Her little boy who is six and has Asperger’s Syndrome knew straight away how it worked, while Cathie was still trying to figure it out! Alex has great trouble knowing how much time has elapsed and the visual movement of the time passing is an enormous help to him.”
“I just wanted to congratulate you on an excellent product which, like all the best inventions, is ingeniously simple! I work in the area of Intellectual Disability (Mental Retardation) and have seen the benefits of your product when appropriately used. One patient, in particular, has had a major improvement in his quality of life as a result of your product. Keep up the good work!”
“My 3.5 year old and I are really enjoying our regular timer. I can see how it’s helping her learn the concept of elapsed time and deadlines. As an adult with ADD who has been chronically late her entire life, I can also say that the visual depiction of time is helping me!”
“I have seven students (six with Autism and one who has Downs Syndrome). I like using the Time Timer with my students because it does not disturb the others, some of whom are extremely noise sensitive.”
– Special Education Classroom Teacher
